Raised in a Southern Baptist household, I have never had much knowledge of Lent. This year I am making an attempt to participate. But, that aside, today's blog is dedicated to Lent...
Lent-(in the Christian religion) an annual season of fasting and penitence in preparation for Easter, beginning on Ash Wednesdayand lasting 40 weekdays to Easter, observed by Roman Catholic, Anglican, and certain other churches.
also, the pass tense of lend (meaning to grant the use of (something) on condition that it or its equivalent will be returned.)
Lint- minute shreds or ravelings of yarn; bits of thread. Like this.
So, one could possibly lend some lint on Lent. cool.
Tonight I went to my first hockey game. (Thanks to Will Ladesma). I have never really followed hockey and don't know much about it, but I had a great time. I found myself really getting into the game, and the more I understood about the way it was played the more I enjoyed it. Its nice to live in a city like Houston where there is actually a team to root for. And hey, our team actually won. 3-1. Thats nice to say. I have been to two Astros games and they lost both of those, so attending a winning game for your home team is nice. Its a good way to start out my hockey viewing. Go Aeros!
