Ash Wednesday

AshWednesday

So it’s here “Ash Wednesday” for non Catholic people like myself who are interested in this religious holiday lets join in. As long as your a Christian you can participate in “Ash Wednesday” so I am a Christian so this is going to be my first year to give up something.

From what I hear from Catholic people you are suppose to give up something for 40 days. It’s like the story in the Bible when Jesus fasted in the wilderness for for 40 days and 40 nights.  Now you are suppose to give up something meaningful to you.

I think I’m going to give up eating meat, procrastinating, and sipping cocktails . Does anyone else want to start the journey of lent with me. Lets give up something in honor of the holiday and celebrate one of the oldest Christian traditions around. If you saw people walking around with a black cross in the middle of their forehead they were practicing the ritual.

What can you give up for 40 days.

Southeast Texas Mardi Gras 2015

MardiGaridPATX

I know everyone has heard about the famous “Mardi Gras” in New Orleans but, a lot of people forget about the Texas “Mardi Gras.” I had the pleasure of attending the Port Arthur “Mardi Gras” which was filled with lots of fun, food, and parties. The admission was ten dollars to get in the strip the fair was actually a free entrance. The strip was filled with lots of unique shops, exotic foods like fried alligator, and interesting things to see like the these two year old white tigers.

People also had a choice between 3 live concerts, a lager variety of beverages, and lots of beads.  My question that I  wanted to ask people is do you know whats the meaning of “Mardi Gras” is and why it is celebrated.

Well I don’t have time to explain the whole history of “Mardi Gras” now but, check out my next blog and it will break down history of this holiday.

Hoping for a Miracle

When someone is crying out for help when is the right time for someone to reach out to them?  If one seems to be on need of an intervention emotionally or spiritually what are family and friends to do. These are questions that many people would like to know when it comes to grief, alleged drug use, and countless other questions surrounding Bobbi Kristina.

The child of music stars Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown was found faced down in a bathtub according to all the major news organizations. Her death is similar to her mother Whitney who was found dead in a Beverly Hills Hotel tub in February 2012. Many people are saying the Lifetime Movie about her mom pushed her over the edge and some reports say it was drugs.

Now people are puzzled on what caused this twenty-one year old healthy young woman to go unconscious during a bath.  Reports from websites like TMZ are saying this  woman is brain dead and is in a medically induce comma.

Well the public is in support of Bobbi Kristina and is hoping for a miracle and believing that some how she will survive this ordeal.
