As I am sure all will agree, this winter has already been a real challenge. The bill alone for snow removal is more than double than what it was the last several years. The cold weather has a way of zapping one’s personal energy. According to the ground hogs (I have always wondered how and why they were chosen as weather forecasters) we still have six more weeks of winter. That will put us right at the beginning of the Great Fast which starts, as I have reminded you, on March 3rd.
Have you given any thought to what you might do to make Lent a special spiritual time for yourself? Now truly is the time to begin planning!
