Many think of Lent as a time to give up something, such as chocolate or booze, but it is much more than that.

Lent is a very important event in the Christian calendar. Lent is the six week period leading up to Easter Sunday. The actual length is 46 days – however, 40 of these are fasting day and six are Sundays. Sundays in Lent are not counted in the forty days because each Sunday represents a “mini-Easter”.

This year, my resolution is simple. I am going to FIND JOY

December 8, 2018


 

In 1996, my family transitioned from our childhood home to the one we live in now. Christmas was quickly approaching and my brother and I, aged 13 and 14, had previously known only bountiful holidays.

"Independence Day represents the beginning of the greatest idea in human history: the American Dream. It marks the beginning of a new era where government should be of the people, by the people, and for the people" Dan Crenshaw, Lt. Commander Navy SEALS (Ret.) Two Bronze Stars (one with Valor), the Purple Heart, and the Navy Commendation Medal with Valor Candidate for U.S. House of Representatives, Texas 2nd District

Mothers are a gift from God, and everyone after Eve has one. So Mother's Day is really a holiday for everyone, a day for thanking God for His blessings in giving us mothers, and an occasion for letting that gratitude ring loudly with expressions of special honor to the most wonderful person in our lives.
