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.
As I have prayed over what my Lenten discipline should be this year, these words are never far from my mind. While I will ultimately decide to "give-up" something, I will also try to take on something, but mainly I want to remember the words from this Lenten Resolve and try to live them not just during this season of lent but throughout the year.
So what have you been up to?
We've spent some time in Mobile celebrating Mardi Gras among other things. I really have no pictures to speak of. It is hard to get pictures when you are juggling four children and their bags while trying to protect them from flying objects.

Now back to the lack of pictures ~ The pictures that I did take are stuck on my camera in Mobile or on my phone. Yes, in our haste to get out the door yesterday, I left my camera on my mother's dining room table. You might be thinking that I have a new phone ~ surely it takes pictures. It does but apparently, my new phone is not so "smart" - it won't send my e-mails. Well, really it is just me who is not so smart. I am not technologically savvy enough to figure out why my phone won't send e-mail.
Just to give you a taste of what we were doing, I'll post pictures from the weekend before:
