Ash Wednesday

 One of the primary opportunities Lent provides for us is a time of self-examination. This is a time to take an honest look at our lives and to discern what is helping us to grow in our faith and what is holding us back. It may be the perfect time to discern what we leave and what we take, what gets done and what is left undone. Those choices will ultimately show where the real treasures lie. 
-Brian Prior

One of the things I will be leaving behind this lenten season is this blog!  I really enjoying blogging, but sometimes it takes up too much of my time...especially going to all the blogs that I love to read!  I read everyday and I feel bad when I don't get to read someone I'm following.  But, I'm going to take the time that I normally spend in blog world and use it to focus on my relationship with God.  The only times I will blog will be for Little Man's monthly updates.  I will miss y'all!

I don't want to leave y'all hanging about the yard sale, so I wanted to let you know that we were very happy with the amount of money we made!  We sold a lot but also had a lot left over.  We took everything left to a church thrift store.  My next job is to organize the space upstairs so I can really put time into my Mama's Messages business!

I hope everyone has a great Lenten season!! See y'all after Easter!

I'll leave you with a picture I took of Little Man after church:
He was walking around the house making clicking noises :)

Happy Wednesday Y'all! And Happy Lent!
