We made it! That’s what I keep thinking as I am cleaning out the fridge..all the leftover fasting dishes going to the scraps. (We have a septic system which means no garbage disposal.) I hope the neighborhood dogs like veggies in the scrap pile…hehe!
I emptied containers of bean salad, coleslaw, a bit of refried beans, orzo pasta with artichokes and capers, and I was doing pretty good until I came upon a container of hummus. The site of that evoked an emotional response. I am sick of hummus! And then a few minutes later I was half tempted to eat the last little bit for lunch. I guess in a way it’s hard for this to be over. So much of Lent revolves around the kitchen, and an Orthodox kitchen is truly a spiritual place. So much of the Christian faith is centered in the home.

Lisa A shared a series of talks on her blog entitled The Good Wife: Five Lectures on the Christian Ideal.
The first lecture is free, and the remaining are only $10 for the complete download. Well worth the donation!

BRIGHT WEEK- the week after Lent in which we continue to practice the spiritual values we gained over the last 40 days.
I thought, “What spiritual values did I gain over the last forty days?” What values must I practice to brighten our lives…our home? I can think of several.
