Now everybody's in the thick of things- Facebook has lost lots of users, chocolate sales are down, and fish sandwiches are on sale at McDonald's (I think- no fast food for me this Lent). Most of my friends- whether Catholic, Lutheran, Baptist- will have smudges on their foreheads today. I'm not sure what my priest-husband has planned for vespers and Bible study tonight, but most of the participants are Roman-rite. I anticipate my husband being 'pastoral'- we shall see. In any case, he will have ashes leftover from the hospital. it is a very busy day for a chaplain.
Not much to say today- but I wanted to encourage those curious about Byzantine lent (which began 2 days ago) to hop on over to Rabbit's blog (cheesy pun intended)- she articulates our Lenten dilemma very well!
FYI- What's for dinner? Well- maybe peanut butter and jelly sandwiches...I'm soaking beans for tomorrow- planning ahead is a challenge for this harried mom!
