Happy Mardi Gras!
Traditionally, today is a time of fun, excitement, and overindulgence in our culture. Mardi Gras(Fat Tuesday) is the day before the start of Lent usually celebrated by parades, lots of good food, and parties in preparation for the Lenten fast that is ahead of us. Celebrating a time of plenty in order to get ready for 40 days of fasting, prayer, and reflection in order to remember why we are here and to learn where we are going. So have a great day today, a great Lenten start, and to truly remember what Jesus gave up for us to be here. Happy Mardi Gras everyone. Wishing everyone a great Lent.
