Lent.....

Still a few hitches I cannot figure out on the blog but it seems to be mostly back to normal.

So Lent In a Tent...a post by Fr. Dwight Longenecker tells about a young boy, 10 year old Philip who spent Lent in a tent. As I'm preparing for Lent, young Philip keeps coming to mind. I hate to be uncomfortable and thinking of living in a tent for 40 days makes me break out in a cold sweat! And then I think of many here in this life that would be so grateful and happy and CONTENT, to be lucky enough to own a tent. So with Lent upon us, I'm going to accept Fr. Longenecker's challenge and sacrifice more...challenge myself to do more for Him..the one who has done all for me.

Julia.....thank you for stopping by my blog, and I understand if your trip to the desert prevents your from visiting the farm, but please know, that I am here to help support your decision, and I am doing a whole series during Lent on the distinction of self through self denial.....

Sincerely,
Anne Marie

Julia,
I read that post, too. And no...there won't be any tent living in my near future either [I hope], but I do wish I could do something radical this Lent for God. I've been thinking about it, I'm sure He'll bring something to mind :)

I'm fasting for 10 days on the Master cleanser, but I will see after the ten days if I can go longer . I don't know what to offer it up for, but I trust Mary and Jesus will know what to do with it :)
