Wednesday of the Second Week in Lent

Children aren't colouring books. You don't get to fill them with your favourite colours.- Rahim Khan..From The Kite Runner.

No, we don't get to colour our children or our families with our favourite colours, to make them into what we want them to be, but we do have influence, we can put things in their paths and hope they will take note.. that they will remember in years to come.

On this Wednesday in Lent we made ( almost)forty meatballs for dinner, to remember the Forty Christian Martyrs of Sebaste, Armenia.

We made pockets with Latin Bible verses for translating for tomorrow's Latin Breakfast Club.

We coloured in the Stations of the Cross, for mum, er, for display. Colouring in while watching Stargate Atlantis. I find colouring to be rthymic, relaxing, fun.
