For The Next 40 Days and 40 Nights

Lent 2013 begins on Wednesday, February 13 {funny fact: 2/13} and ends on Saturday, March 30 with Easter Sunday being on March 31. Today is Ash Wednesday, which marks the beginning of the season of Lent. During this season, many Christians engage in fasting or giving up something as a form of penitence.

If you are looking for some gifts to give, here is a website that offers faith-based gifts. There is not a Made in the USA search. {I did email the company asking about this option because it used to exist.} The product's description contains the information about the local artist, meaning that the city and state in which the product is made may be stated.

  4. Hi. Caffeine is a big thing to give up. Good luck to him. I gave it up a few years ago and it was not easy, but I did it.
