ok...lent begins tomorrow! so today we eat! whether you're celebrating mardi gras or shrove tuesday, food is an important part...so if you're in cincy, join us for pancakes at IHOP in oakley (near target and mejeir) at 5:30pm .
here's some history on shrove tuesday...the day before lent that provides an opportunity to confess our sins and to get all the fat and sugar out of the pantry before the lenten fast begins.
shrove tuesday AND more here
the lenten season is not just about giving up things, at least for me. it's about preparing my heart for easter. getting ready for the death and suffering of jesus and then the joy of his resurrection. it's a 40 day opportunity to journey with jesus.
a 40 day opportunity to discover the things i've lost along the way.
a 40 day opportunity to rediscover my first love...jesus christ.
