So I'm on my own today because poor Tallulah is at the hospital. She has not been feeling well for a few days so our master took her to the vet's and he decided to keep her over night. She is always annoying me by chewing on the fur around my neck but I already miss her!
So today is Ash Wednesday
and that means it's the first day of Lent!
Lent is 40 days long (Sundays don't count!)
It's a time to get ready for the big celebration of Easter!
There are 3 main things we should all be doing during Lent to help us get ready for Easter.
The first is to spend more time with God by praying.
The second is fasting which is a fancy way of saying that you stop doing something (like watching TV, eating candy, playing x-box) as a way to better understand people who are not lucky enough to have everything you do.
The third is giving to charity this could be money or your time.
Lacy over at Catholic Icing has many great ideas for doing all three of these things. Be sure to check them out.
And finally, here is a picture of our "uncle" Father Timothy on Ash Wednesday last year in Israel.
Talk to you soon. Woof!
