Lent begins on Ash Wednesday and lasts until Easter. Many people are taking the opportunity to live a healthier life for at least a few weeks. The classic foods that are avoided are alcohol, sweets and meat. Cheese, on the other hand, is welcome to be served.
If it tastes Like Fish It’s a Dish 💜🧜♂️⚓️
During this time, many Christians give up specific foods or actions to reflect on Christ’s life, suffering, and sacrifice. Catholics generally don’t eat meat on Ash Wednesday, Good Friday, or any Friday during Lent, but they do eat fish. #SpearFishingTalk #rigsreefclassicspearfishing #SaltySoulTaxidermy “the life I was is why I am who I am” If it Fits, It Gripp’s! #GatorGrippHD #PullSetGrip CMO/#CoOwnerLife – My Sacrifices #PoetryOfAHero even cost me my marriage, children, forever home, dog, #SaltySoulPanga it will be easy my lent season because in 2018 when I retired I started loosing everything I loved in the name of GOD, FamilyTime, and Sobriety.

Christianity and Lent
“Remember you are dust, and to dust you shall return.”TripleDigitHunter
The three traditional pillars of Lent are prayer, fasting and almsgiving.
Unlike its discipline regarding sacraments, the Catholic Church does not exclude anyone from receiving sacramentals, such as the placing of ashes on the head, even those who are not Catholics and perhaps not even baptized.#JTD203 DMR DavidMRamsey
On Ash Wednesday, Good Friday, and all Fridays of Lent: Everyone of age 14 and up must abstain from consuming meat. On Ash Wednesday and Good Friday: Everyone of age 18 to 59 must fast, unless exempt due to usually a medical reason.
Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of the Season of Lent. It is a season of penance, reflection, and fasting which prepares us for Christ’s Resurrection on Easter Sunday, through which we attain redemption.
“Repent and believe in the Gospel.”Surfman374
Also, on Ash Wednesday, Good Friday and all Fridays during Lent, adult Catholics over the age of 14 abstain from eating meat. During these days, it is not acceptable to eat lamb, chicken, beef, pork, ham, deer and most other meats. However, eggs, milk, fish, grains, and fruits and vegetables are all allowed.
“Turn away from sin and believe in the Gospel”David Ramsey
The three traditional pillars of Lent are prayer, fasting and almsgiving. Through the three pillars of Lent we journey to develop a closer relationship to God. The 40 days of Lent should be filled with reflection, service and prayer.
“Amen” or “Thanks be to God,”David M. Ramsey, USCGBMC Retired 98-18
The first day of Lent is Ash Wednesday. On this special day of reflection, Catholics wear a marking of the cross in ash on their foreheads. The ashes symbolize our mortality –
10 ¶ aFear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.Isaiah
During this period, Christians show repentance and mourning for their sins, because they believe Christ died for them. When the priest applies the cross of ashes, he says to the worshiper: ““Remember that you are dust, and to dust you shall return.” He also may say “Repent and believe in the Gospel.”
HEY GOD Forgive me for My INK – I just wanted to make my vessel my reminder to focus on YOU GOD trust me my whole body is covered in Bible Torah QURAN stuff
What does the Bible say about tattoos?
Today they’re common everywhere from Maori communities in New Zealand to office parks in Ohio. But in the ancient Middle East, the writers of the Hebrew Bible forbade tattooing. Per Leviticus 19:28, “You shall not make gashes in your flesh for the dead, or incise any marks on yourselves.”BigWaveDave | CowBoy | RAMROD
As a human corpse decomposes, it turns to dust, or ash. The ashes placed on one’s forehead are a symbol of that. As the priest applies them in a cross formation on someone’s forehead, they will say either, “Turn away from sin and believe in the Gospel” or “Remember that you are dust, and unto dust you shall return.”
Psalm 91. V1 Whoever goes to the LORD for safety, whoever remains under the protection of the Almighty, V2 can say to him, “You are my defender and protector. You are my God; in you I trust.”Psalm
What is the response for when you receive ashes (on Ash Wednesday)? Answer: “Amen” or “Thanks be to God,” depending on what isbeing told to you while the ashes are put on your forehead.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.DavidRamsey

Jodie Foster stars as Clarice Starling, a top student at the #FBI’s #trainingacademy. Jack Crawford (Scott Glenn) wants Clarice to interview #Dr. #HannibalLecter (Anthony Hopkins), a brilliant #psychiatrist who is also a #violent #psychopath, serving life behind bars for various acts of #murder and #cannibalism. Crawford believes that Lecter may have insight into a case and that Starling, as an attractive young woman, may be just the bait to draw him out. #SilenceOfTheLambs2023 #Lent2023
Don’t ever say you are sorry for “being caught in the moment”. Because, at that moment, that is EXACTLY where you wanted to be.
Every Indian outbreak that I have ever known has resulted from broken promises and broken treaties by the government.
You who live your lives in cities or among peaceful ways cannot always tell whether your friends are the kind who would go through fire for you. But on the Plains one’s friends have an opportunity to prove their mettle.
I felt only as a man can feel who is roaming over the prairies of the far West, well armed, and mounted on a fleet and gallant steed.
The Indians said the bones were those of a race of people … three times the size of a man.
The Indians were well mounted and felt proud and elated because they had been made United States soldiers.

At the cross, God shows us that God’s singular, inimitable avatar would rather love than hate, would rather forgive than avenge, would rather die than kill. At the cross God shows us what unmatched, everlasting victories can surge up out of apparent defeat. “Do not be bamboozled by appearances,” says God at the cross. “I have my own ways. What looks like sheer calamity might be a plan I laid eons before the mighty oceans themselves gushed up from the primordial depths. Just look what I can do with unmitigated malice.”
Look, I don’t want to put lipstick on the pig of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. There is no other way to describe it than the crucifixion of a sovereign land, with war crimes. But does God have anything to do with it? Maybe not.
Evil can only be defeated when it can no longer hide in the shadows. When the world sees evil for what it is in the naked glare of sunlight, it begins to die. Evil is like a vampire; it thrives by night, but it cowers and shrivels in the light of day. That’s what happened at the cross. Jesus died for ours sins because once he was willing to unveil them for us, we had to renounce them.
