Still Getting Ready.

It's almost here!   That special time of year when we set aside part of the world and regroup, to a more peaceful and simple lifestyle.  We make time for prayer and charitable activity.  We simplify our menus to a vegan/vegetarian diet.  We read a book to help us grow spiritually and we attend the special services of Lent: Compline, Presanctified Liturgy and Akathist.  And in 7 weeks we will joyfully proclaim Christ's resurrection with a crack of our red eggs and feast as if we were at a wedding banquet!  Our celebration will be ever more sweeter with the care and dedication to prayer, fasting and almsgiving that are elements of the Lenten Season. 

I've just started saving up my onion skins for my natural egg dye...  Last year I started late, and stopped by a restaurant, famous for their homemade onion rings and asked for their help in securing the onion skins.  This year I will try to save them myself. 

I wish you all a Good Beginning!  and a most Blessed Lent.
