7 Quick Takes: Lenten Randomness

May I start with a prayer request? One of my dear friend’s father was confirmed with stage 4 lung cancer. I believe he is only in his 60s. Please not only pray for him but for his family. Thanks.

Reminder for those of you who participate in the First Friday Devotions to the Sacred Heart of Jesus, today is First Friday. πŸ˜‰ If you don’t participate in the First Friday devotions, Lent would be a good time to start!

While I am at it, tomorrow is  First Saturday which is traditionally devoted to Our Lady. Lent would be a good time to start the First Saturday devotions, too.

A beautiful song that is perfect for Lent: (It is 4 minutes and 21 seconds)

There are 31 days until Easter Sunday. Andrew’s birthday the 31st and so falls on Easter Sunday this year. He is absolutely thrilled and excited to have his birthday on Easter and is counting the days. Not that he would be any less excited if his birthday didn’t fall on Easter. πŸ™‚ Every year since he was three he has been counting down to his birthday starting in January! Remember those days when you were excited for your birthday to come?!

What are you making for dinner for this Lenten Friday? If you are looking for ideas, here is a list of some meatless recipes. Still, I’m always looking for new recipes, especially for meatless ones for Fridays because we forego meat even outside of Lent. I don’t want to fall into the rut of having pizza or fish sticks every week. Tonight I’m using a shrimp recipe that Jen (Conversion Diary Jen) shared a while back. (Scroll down to #6 to see the recipe.) It is ridiculously easy to make and so good. I’ve made it three times so far and it’s been a big hit every time.

Finally I thought I’d share this website that I found called Praying Lent. It has prayers and other resources such as an online Lenten Retreat. I haven’t delved that far into the website yet, but what I’ve seen so far looks good.

God Bless you!
