Shriving

Sharing our Shrove Tuesday doings, beloveds! Pray yours was sweet and filled with joy.

We come together.

Usher in this season of Lent; ache to shed our excess.

Tonight, we feast.





We feast on the sweets of abundance; drinking in laughter and offering what we hold in our hands.











For tomorrow we will don the garb of mourning, let ashes crown our glory.


But tonight, we celebrate the great blessings he has given us.










“Our mouths were filled with laughter, our tongues with songs of joy. Then it was said among the nations, ‘The Lord has done great things for them.’ The Lord has done great things for us, and we are filled with joy.” (Psalm 126:2-3)

    I am giving something up for lent this year. This is my first time doing so. I am pretty excited. It will help me reflect on my Savior’s sacrafice.

    May God bless you during this lenten season.

    Oh, He has done great things for us hasn’t He?!!

    I’m glad you’re back as one of my followers. I was so sad when I saw a number missing. I always think “Have I offended someone?” 🙂

    Have a great evening Laura!

    Love,
    Valerie
