March Inn

Why"March Inn?" March Inn was the name of that magic place where I spent my summers growing up. I have alluded to this place before, and I probably will again. March Inn is no longer standing. The waters of Katrina rendered it unlivable so my children will never know that "March Inn." That makes me sad. In fact it brings me to tears whenever I think about it. I want my children to have their own "March Inn," and I want to capture our lives as they are growing and changing. I invite you to "march inn" to our lives. My hope is that you will catch glimpses of the real world. You will see our creations. You will see our chaos. You will see our affection. You will also see our frustrations, fears, and disappointments. Enjoy your march!

Ash Wednesday

A Lenten Resolve

Fast from criticism, and feast on praise.
Fast from self-pity, and feast on joy.
Fast from ill temper, and feast on peace.
Fast from resentment, and feast on contentment.
Fast from jealousy, and feast on love.
Fast from pride, and feast on humility.
Fast from selfishness, and feast on service.
Fast from fear, and feast on faith.

Unfortunately, I don't know who wrote this and I wish I did so I could give the author due credit. I love these words ~ I stumbled upon them many years ago when Frank and I were visiting churches and received a myriad assortment of church bulletins each week. I pull these words out each lent to dwell on them, pray over them, and attempt to live by them. Easter has always been my favorite holiday and in the years when I am able to "keep lent" it makes Easter morning that much more glorious.

I have had the privilege of meeting some wonderful people through the church we did in fact join and one of those special people has posted some tips for lent with little ones.
