I came across this post today from Building Faith (http://www.buildfaith.org/), and I’d like to share it in honor of President’s Day, especially in light of the Gospel Reading yesterday (Matthew 5:38-48). Hope you all are enjoying this spring-like day, and hope nobody minds the fact that I am still praying for a snow day/admin leave day this winter 🙂
Today is February 2, 2017 so Happy Groundhog Day and Happy Candlemas Day!
Curious as to what Candlemas is all about? Please check out the following article, and have a great Candlemas Day — remember to eat crepes for dinner!
