All Our Lenten Ideas and Plans......so far (and Easter Too)

Once again we come to the great opportunity for us to grow as Christians in the time of LENT. Lent can be viewed as a very hard tome or one in which we can walk closer to Jesus and be thankful for the opportunities to grow.

I would like to share with you the past as you look through the  inspirations that help us focus on this Lenten season. I will be adding our plans for this Lenten season in the next couple of day too!
