Home Features Calendar - Lent Friday after Ash Wednesday By The Editors February 27, 2009 Return to the Lent calendar. Lent Quotable The best of all medicines is resting and fasting.— Benjamin Franklin Fast from complaining about your job and all that weighs you down about hard work. Pray for those who are unemployed and pray in thanksgiving for your gainful employment. (NOTE: If you are out of work, take a minute today to reflect on what you still have to be grateful for.) Give some of your time to someone you know who is out of work or put two dollars in your FastPrayGive Bowl. (Your FastPrayGive Bowl is a container you set aside to hold the money saved from various fasting challenges to be used for whatever charity you choose at the end of Lent.) Slipped up? Don’t give up. Start again and share yourstruggles at our “Slip Support Station” on Facebook. Today’s Prize is: Swedish Fish To win today’s prize: Give us your name and email address along with the email address of one friend you’d like to introduce to BustedHalo.com® using the form below by 3 a.m. EST tonight.
