Lent - Is it Sneeking Up on You, Too??

So many things going on right now.  This past weekend we had our Father/Daughter Ball and I, being the photographer, took 791 pictures of the loveliest ladies and their dads.  Of course, that now means that I have to sort through and edit those 791 pictures...and share them, of course!

On Sunday, I then went and did an engagement photo shoot and took another 240 pictures.  It was a gray day, but the pictures turned out great. That means, however, that I have another 240 pictures to sort through and edit.  

Then I remembered that I'm giving a talk tomorrow night to a local MOPS group...on the importance of schedules, no less.  Aghhh!  Thank goodness for Adoration and Divine Inspiration to help me get that into some semblance of order.

And then it hit me.  Ash Wednesday is next week. That means Lent and penance and some kind of a plan.  I try not to plan too much for Lent, but then on the other hand, if I don't plan at all, I waste this valuable time.  

One thing I know that I will be doing is participating in the Catholic Conference for Moms.  It is an online conference full of wonderful Catholic speakers who will rejuvenate your spirit.  There are some great talks lined up and the best part is (well, really there are TWO best parts) that it is FREE and you can listen to the talks wherever and whenever you want to.  All you have to do is sign up and they'll email you reminders and links to the talks.  They're even giving away prizes.  You can go here to register.  Then go and mark it on your calendar so that you don't forget to make it part of your Lenten journey. 

If you miss some of the talks or you want to listen to them again, you'll have the chance to purchase the conference package after the conference weekend.  Rumor has it that I'll even have a discount code to give you, so stay tuned for that one.


The way that life speeds by, I hope you'll take some time to slow down, listen to some great talks, and really feed your soul during Lent.  Now get going and register!

God Bless!
