Where I live today is Mardi Gras. It is always the Tuesday before Ash Wednesday. I have been giving a lot of thought to Lent this year. Do I give something up? Do I take something on? I love a glass of wine but am thinking of giving that up for 40 days. I have done a lot of growing and forgiving over the last year. Do I continue with that?

Anyone else giving thought to this season?

Hi Bitsy,

To be honest, I am not catholic so,
I did not give it much thought. But I do like the idea of giving something up for 40 days, for what Jesus did for me.

So, I think it is a good idea. I aslo think, yes keep growing and keep forgiving those that harm you.

Hi Bitsy,

Happy Mardi Gras! Where I live it is Fat Tuesdday also.

I am not Catholic and do not entirely understand the Lenten Season. You say you that you enjoy a class of wine. How often do you drink the class of wine? In giving up this galss of wine, is this truly a sacrifice for you?

Oh I have a glass every night. It is the whole process of opening the wine or stopper, putting it in a really pretty wineglass and sipping on it. I is part of my nightly routine. There will be about an hour I won't know what to do with my hands.

I grew up where mardi gras was a school holiday. It was great. I say anytime is a good time to give something up or take something on.

Happy Mardi Gras even though I don't live in the area, but have family who does and they go just to have fun.
