Ash Wednesday

The traditional beginning of Lent. 40 days (actually 46) of self sacrifice, introspection, and meditation on life and the Lord. I will be busy making soup for a bread and soup dinner at my church tonight, so my blogging will be limited. I hope you understand. But I will be back on the job with some great Neil Cavuto moments around 8PM.

    Jim, having just read your brief reflection on Lent, like you, I will be helping with the soup and bread over at my parish church next Wednesday, the first of the Wednesdays during Lent which will have not only that type of supper, but the Stations of the Cross as well. May this Lent be truly a blessed one filled with prayer, self-sacriface, and service.

      Technecally, it is 46 days, but because there are 6 days that are Sundays, and it is the Lord's Day, each are "little Easters" as my parish priest would say, the strict giving up or fasting part does not occur on Sundays also as my mother had told me years ago. So the 40 days of Lent are correct.
