Winter Halloween

It's Fat Tuesday again. Whooppee.

As if I needed another reason to let my flesh run wild.

Last year my pastors put this in their pre-Lent rally letter, which I repeat here because I thought it good:

"Jesus, knowing all that was going to happen to him, went out and asked them, 'Who is it you want?'" (John 18:4)
"And you? Who will you want- and seek- these coming Wednesdays and Sundays of Lent? Will the world and your flesh argue their priorities? Or...Him who gave His body and shed His blood for you?"

There's also a chance to pick up some lovely plastic bead necklaces.

Barb!

Exactly what kind of church do you go to, anyway?!

Silly! You don't get those at church! Your pastor's wife sends them to you after she attends the biggest Mardi Gras celebration ever in Mobile, Alabama! Well, at least that's how it worked for *us* last year. This year we really didn't do anything for Mardi Gras at all. No biggie.

My pastor's wife never gave me any. And how does a pastor's wife get them at Mardi Gras Fest?

The Mardi Gras in Mobile, AL, is a *family* event, Scottius!

I have to take back one thing. My husband's company had a Mardi Gras bowling party on Tuesday and my husband got some lovely bead necklaces for his girls.
