And We're Off!

Husband and I attended the very first Mass today at 7:00am.  Not too crowded which was nice.  You can make out a distinct cross on my forehead not the dreaded smudge which makes your co-workers think you're fixing the copier by yourself again.  We have a joint sacrifice this Lenten season - not arguing.  Last year we did not eating out.  That was unrealistic but we'll see how the not arguing goes.  Interestingly, the priest touched upon arguing in his sermon.  He said there's no point in fasting or denying yourself food and then you go home and be a jerk to your family.  So, he said try and be a nice guy which I think is always good advice.

I don't have a Lenten prayer buddy this time but I'll be praying for everyone in our blog community that God gives them the strength they need to draw closer to Him through sacrifice.  Amen!


  1. I didn't sign up for Lenten prayer buddies this time either. I always keep those struggling with IF in my prayers. It's a tough road to climb over or have to accept.

  2. I didn't make it to Mass until 7 pm, and I kept thinking how I needed to knock off my crankiness, or it didn't do me much good to be there, so I agree with your priest. Good luck on not arguing!

  3. 7 am Mass...woowee, that's early!! ;) Praying for you this Lenten season!!
