Thoughts on Lent

Oddly, I always look forward to Lent. It is a time to fix things in your life and bring more faith to it. I like to give up something that is bad for me physically, and also spiritually, as well as add something that will improve my spiritually life. I also like the focus on sacrifice, as I struggle with this. I need all the help I can in learning to sacrifice. While we do live a very merger life, I don't always do it without complaining, and I need to learn to do that.

I will say, that taking this journey back to the Church has made me a little lonely. I long for other Traditional Catholics to be around. We both wish Mass was closer so we could be more involved. Even though it is my husband who is converting, I feel like I am re-entering the Church as well, and look forward to learning along with him, as he will be getting a much better education than I ever did. :)

I agree! I am learning so much more about the Faith by homeschooling my children! It is an awesome journey!

This is actually one of the things I look forward to when homeschooling. That and just watching the children learn, that is cool. I always loved the look in the kids eyes when they really got something, really learned it.

There is something about being around a person learning the faith, it does something amazing for your own. How can you deny how wonderful and deep our faith is while watching someone learn it?

Thanks for posting, nice to know someone's reading :).
