Cheesefare Sunday




Blessed beginning of Lent! 
Forgive me a sinner!
***
We had a nice day at our local church
and then resting at home and having a nice
festive dinner and then 
watching the Waltons :).
***
I am hoping to make lentil soup tomorrow
and getting some cards written!
Church at night! 
***
I often forget the sense of joy and anticipation that 
this special day, with forgiveness vespers, 
gives!  A joy that kindles love that makes one plunge 
forward, not matter what difficulties may await us. 
***
May God give us a Good Lent and carry us to His Pascha!

Wishing you & your a BLESSED and BEAUTIFUL Great Lent,, my friend! The beginning of Lent is a wondrous thing really, it wakes us up... which is oftentimes just what we need. Though a penitent time, there is much joy to be found in this Lent journey! May God Bless and forgive us every step of the way to the Cross! :) ((HUGS))

I must confess, I know very little about the feasts and fasts of the Orthodox Church. I really need to read your page about Our Faith @ Home. But anything that glorifies Jesus is a good thing! Blessings as you follow Him! :)
