Ash Wednesday 2012

Today marks the beginning of Lent in the Christian/Catholic Church. I  have decided this year to give up Facebook. It will be hard, but so worth it (I can tell)! I spend more than half of my day on the darned thing. I mean it’s great for making connections and keeping up with family, etc. but it’s incredibly addictive with all those pages you can find! I don’t play any of the games any more and only have 3 active apps (birthday calendar by American Greetings, I ❤ Pucca, and what God wants you to know).  So if you get a notification or card, etc. from me on Facebook from now until Easter Sunday, it was all pre-sent and or does so automatically (like this entry will appear on Facebook because I told it to link my two accounts together).

Also I’ve decided to try to attend Mass two extra times during the weeks of Lent. Who knows I may actually keep this up after Lent, too. First things first, I have to find which times will work with my schedule.

I’d write more about what Ash Wednesday is, but I can’t do it justice. There are lots of cool articles out there, but if you do have questions let me know and I’ll try to answer them.

Good luck on your Lenten Journey and I’ll see you again tomorrow.

God bless!


About Christy

I enjoy: my family, my faith life, photography, drawing; writing, working on cars, basketball, football, and baseball. These are just a few of the many things I'll just have to read my blog to know me better to know more of them. Other things you may not catch on that I enjoy are: cats, angels, ballroom dancing, Christian music, camping (being one with nature and all of God's creations), traveling, cherry and apple blossoms, and the colors blue (in all shades), white, black, dark purple, and SOME shades of pink. (Rainbows are cool, too. And I'm NOT a lesbian! Although, I'm friends with some gays and lesbians as well as a few transgenders.) I am Roman Catholic. I graduated from Johnson County Community College, where I majored in Animation in hopes of fulfilling my dreams of being a computer generated animation movie maker. I also have a degree in Corporate Communication from Avila University. I'm currently employed at Nestle Toll House/Haagen-Dazs (at Oak Park Mall in Overland Park), I own my own business -- C & S Productions, L.L.C. (check it out at, and am single. My favorite time of year is Winter and the Christmas season! It's just so...well, I can't put it into words. ^_^ Lastly, I am 36 years young!
