[Note: I’d like to thank my friend Lisa Hendey for bringing me on board the crew sharing regular faith thoughts at CatholicMom.com. Every Friday of Lent (and hopefully beyond), my posts will be duplicated there. I’m looking forward to being a part of her excellent slate of faith columnists!]
I definitely look forward to Lent. It is the Christian season of reflection and remembrance. To me it leads to the greatest celebration in our faith and that it is Easter. Great blog post!
When I was a kid in Catholic school, the teachers made Lent kind of fun. Everyone was given a sheet of paper (the teachers too!) that looked like a calendar but were the 40 days of Late. Then we were to write something in each block that we were going to give up or do. I remember writing things like giving up dessert, volunteering at a nursing home, sending a thinking of you card to someone special, doing chores without being told, those kinds of things. It made it fun and interesting while teaching us the importance of the season, too.
HAPPY LENT, ROXANE! I hope it’s abundant with joyful and peaceful moments for you and your family. 🙂
I just read your post on CatholicMom and wanted to tell you it was wonderful! I always feel like Lent should be happy – we know the end of the story and it is so joyful. Giving things for Lent always make me feel good as well as the recipient. Glad to hear I’m not the only one celebrating!
Katie, we’re on the same page for certain.
Laura, our kids do similar things at school. Small acts lead to bigger acts. I love the positivity that is spread in their Catholic school.
Heididisco, that’s quite a blog name – fun! Thanks for stopping by. I love meeting new readers and bloggers. Enjoy your Lent!
