Happy Shrove Tuesday everyone! In honor of today, I had pancakes for supper :-). Why pancakes?
In most traditions the day is known for the eating of pancakes before the start of Lent. Pancakes are eaten as they are made out of the main foods available, sugar, fat, flour and eggs, whose consumption was traditionally restricted during the ritual fasting associated with Lent. Wikipedia
Lent begins tomorrow, and I’ve decided to give up soft drinks and fast food. I also will be taking on a renewed commitment to dedicated prayer time. Are you committing to a Lenten practice this season?
