so Lent begins tomorrow. Every year for the past several, I have given up all blogging activity, including reading and commenting, for Lent. This year, that also means no posting here on tumblr. After tonight, Scurvy Oaks will go quiet until Easter. See y’all then.
Collect for Ash Wednesday:
ALMIGHTY and everlasting God, who hatest nothing that thou hast made, and dost forgive the sins of all those who are penitent; Create and make in us new and contrite hearts, that we, worthily lamenting our sins and acknowledging our wretchedness, may obtain of thee, the God of all mercy, perfect remission and forgiveness; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
