Lent has begun officially for all of Christendom, more or less. Some observe it and some do not. It depends on your particular denominational tradition really, and each individual. Of all the fasts and feasts in the Eastern Orthodox church, Lent and Easter (Pascha) are the most difficult and joyous.

Because of my health issues I do not go all out on the fasting, yet try to do as much as I possibly can. The Husband, of course, does more.

And, because of Lent, I have been trying to decide what I should do with this blog. Lent affects us in each area of our daily life, or should. This blog is a very important part of my life and daily life at that, even if I don’t post every single day.

So, what should I do? I am not going to stop blogging for all of Lent because interesting things happen and I would like to share, talk about them, report them, etc., but I would also like to share something important about my faith.

Decisions. Decisions.


About Henrietta Handy

I am a Kentucky mountain girl far from home, perhaps far from the girl years. I am an aspiring writer with a wonderful husband who puts up with this writing and reading addiction I have. He also puts up with all of the yarn and knitting. I have four canine children and a ton of friends I love dearly. I was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis at the age of 2 1/2 and have still managed to have a good life despite all the pain. So, I invite you to join me in this journey and just possibly have fun along the way.

    With two kids, a husband, a business, and life in general I join you with the “what to do for Lent?” Question. Fasting is complicated with kids, and a non-orthodox husband. Maybe instead of fasting and “giving up” something you can use this space for an additional commitment to prayer or scripture. Just do a daily reading and write about it?
