This week let us remember to thank God for all the blessings he bestows upon us.  And let us, this week, not forget to thank God for dieing on the cross for us, and to ask Him for the strength to endure any cross that we may find ourselves carrying.  And finally, let us take this week, the half-way point of our Lenten journey, to rejuvenate ourselves, re-focus our attention, and re-fresh our minds towards the final triumphant reward that is awaiting for us at the end of our journey…Christ’s glorious resurrection.  Good Strength to you all as we begin the second half of this great and holy fast.
