Shrove Tuesday is a term used in Ireland, the United Kingdom, and Australia for the day preceding the first day of the Christian holiday season of Lent.
The word shrove is the past tense of the English verb shrive, which means to obtain absolution for one's sins by way of Confession and doing penance. Thus Shrove Tuesday gets its name from the shriving that English Christians were expected to do prior to receiving absolution immediately before Lent begins
Today my girls Easter dresses arrived. I snapped some quick pictures of them opening their parcels.
The top Picture is our nature table: Complete with our crown of thorns, to remind us of our Lord's suffering on the cross, our branch ready to be used as our Jesse Tree which tells the story of God's plan of salvation throughout the Bible. A simple Easter book & our Snowdrop fairy. (The snowdrops are still out in force in our garden)
Have a blessed day...
