Happy Second Sunday of Lent! It also happens to be St. Patrick’s Day this year.
I’ve marked this day by wearing some green to Mass and we’ll be enjoying corned beef with cabbage and veggies. And, I am going to make my Irish Soda Bread with a gluten-free flour blend. Fingers crossed it works out.
Reflecting on Week 1 of Lent 2019
Spiritually, I feel like it wasn’t nearly where I wanted to be.
But, with the trip back to Colorado last Tuesday, I missed attending a daily Mass as I hoped.
Of course, that “Bomb Cyclone” that hit Colorado shortly after we landed put a damper on leaving the townhouse. Thankfully, we never lost power while many in the state did. It was interesting to see the rain and then snow coming at you horizontally.
And, I know that daily Mass probably won’t happen when I am in San Diego for Social Media Marketing World. Although, I suppose I could do like my grandmother did when she couldn’t leave the house and watch a broadcast Mass. It just isn’t the same.
I do plan to bring both A Word Among Us and the Black Book with me. I may also bring one or both of the books featured below.
Kingdom of Happiness is the title being done as a study on Wednesday at our Alaska parish. 7 Secrets of Confession is one that I keep meaning to read as I know how powerful the Sacrament of Reconciliation can be.
40 Days of Seeking Him Sampler
If you have been reading the blog for a while, then you might recall that this link up started in 2011 as a daily one. I didn’t always participate but have made an effort to do it as often as possible. We switched to a weekly link up format which means at least one anchor post per week here.
I decided to pull together a ‘sampler’ as a free ebook to subscribers. If you are already a subscriber, just open up a recent weekly newsletter and click over to the appropriate “subscriber only” page.
If you are not currently a subscriber, you can get your copy when you sign up.

The linky will be up each week so you can add in posts daily, weekly, or whenever you are able.
The posts can be about anything related to Lent and preparations for Easter. This includes crafts, food, devotions, music or reflections.
I hope that my readers will join us on the journey through Lent as we seek to grow closer to Christ. Christian bloggers are welcome to join us in the weekly link up with posts that they are writing to showcase activities or reflections taken during this Lenten journey.
We are expanding the platform for this meme to include a 40 Days of Seeking Him Pinterest board for submitted posts and a Facebook group. I hope that you’ll check out the Pinterest board and join us on Facebook, too, as we seek to grow closer to Christ.
