… I am terrible at Lent. I never seem to get it right. I can’t stick to what I’ve given up or remain dedicated to what I’ve promised to do. The best I can muster is reading a book relating to Lent and a fish fry or two. Terrible, I know. I can not even cultivate a proper penitential atmosphere on my blog that so many others seem to do. But I will try though. There’s merit in effort I’ve heard. At least I pray there is.

Tomorrow is Fat Tuesday and I am going to do what I typically do this time every year in preparation…

I recognize that look... it's the look of someone who's about to get their hand stabbed if they don't remove it from my doughnut.

… gorge on doughnuts. Amen.

    All we can do is try our best to make this Lent more meaningful than previous ones. It requires  determination and responding to God’s grace. I think it also includes learning to be kind to ourselves and trusting in God’s love for us.

    You should try to find paczkis (pronounced poonchkees) in your area. They are Polish stuffed doughnuts, much like bismarcks, filled with various flavors.  I prefer lemon and raspberry.
