Lent..

I love Lent...more than I love the New Year. You are probably wondering why aren't you. well, I love the fresh start of a NEW YEAR, but let's face it..after rolling off the HIGH of Christmas it is hard to get in the swing of things. with LENT..the weather, here in SC anyway, is starting to warm a bit(most days), Spring is right around the corner..and I am ready to give up and take up.

This year our whole family has given up sweet treats, and if you knew anything about us(not really me, I like savory) it will be a challenge..the baby loves her some skittles!! We also are not snacking or buying anything..with hopes of making a better donation to our church causes.

I am "borrowing" Kim. from 3 Peanuts idea of purging 40 bags of unwanted items for donation or just plain trash in 40 days..this should add a little more beauty to our bedrooms..living room, clutter free!

I hope GOD'S abundant love blesses us all, keeps us safe and helps us stick to our challenges.

"I Can Do All Things Through Christ Who Strengthens Me"
Philippians 4:13
