I don't seem to keep up with this blog quite as well as I'd like! :( I saw a challenge issued on another blog I read to try to make a new entry for every day in February. Obviously, that makes me now several days behind, since today is already Feb. 7! But I'll jump in right where I am and try to have a new entry each and every day for the rest of the month. How does that sound? :) (Sounds to me like it could get very rambling...).
Anyway, for today's post, I'll just hit a few highlights. Sarah created a tea party for us today, telling me that she was serving "gracious tea." Not sure exactly what "gracious tea" is or where she came up with that, but it sounds lovely, doesn't it? :)
Nelson's work is going well so far--he now has one week under his belt. He doesn't have any idea at this point how long the "temporary" aspect of it will go, but we are grateful that he has it for however long. Of course, we are hoping and praying that it does become permanent, but we're trying to take things one day at a time. :)
Since yesterday was Ash Wednesday, and Lent is now upon us, I thought I'd share this entry on another blog I read. It describes her first experience with Ash Wednesday service and her first Lent. You can read that here http://dsimple.wordpress.com/2008/02/06/ash-wednesday/
I have tried a time or two to do something for Lent, with varying degrees of success. I don't think I got anything spiritual out of it, which defeats the whole purpose. So this year, instead of trying to "give up" something, I'm just going to focus on staying consistent in daily Bible study and prayer. Those are good goals for any time of year, not just Lent! :)
Talk to you tomorrow! :)
