Lent has begun, yesterday was Ash Wednesday. To Christians this might be a time of giving up something, skipping red meat on Friday or doing something out of the ordinary for good.

This season in the church is also a good opportunity to learn more about the Bible, history, and ourselves.

Starting Sunday March 5, 2017 at 9 PM Eastern Time on CNN:
Season 2 of Finding Jesus: Faith, Fact, Forgery. 

I watched Series 1 last year and so far this year I was able to watch the episode that will air on Sunday night. I gotta say I must not have paid great attention in Sunday School-or perhaps I just didn't remember so much as I absorbed watching the show.

It's about Doubting Thomas. I just always associate him with a children's Bible story and never gave much thought to what he was doubting about. Do you have doubts? What about? I think my doubt's lie with illness and getting older. When a loved one is ill I doubt they will get better, but I shouldn't doubt that-I don't know if a great cure will come one day and all the illness will be gone. I should pray for that rather than doubt that illness is just going to always be there.

Thomas doubts that Jesus arose from the dead. He wants to see Jesus and touch him so he knows he is alive. Jesus does come to Thomas and lets him feel his body, so now Thomas doesn't have to doubt that anymore. But Thomas does still have doubts...

The disciples are sent out into the world, like to the ends of the earth so to speak to spread Jesus's teachings. Thomas is sent to India. He doubts he'll have the strength for such a journey, but he does make it, and spreads the word of Jesus to the people of India. 

He is still celebrated today in India within the Christan community. 

This one episode taught me so much about the disciples, India, and parts of the Bible that reference this topic. Plus, a word on the facts: scientist are studying artifacts, bones, and books about Thomas. 

Have a look at the episode's trailer:

Giveaway of New Soft Scrub® 4-in-1 Toliet Cleaner to three lucky winners.

  Let's talk about cleaning toilets. Hmm, I'd rather not talk about that, or clean them. However, I don't want dirty toilets in our house, so I have to clean all three of them. I'd clean four or five because I really would like two downstairs bathrooms in my next house. We have one powder room on the first floor and two full baths upstairs.I'd like three full baths upstairs. Why in the world would I want to clean all that? Who knows, but having a product that can help out cleaning the three we currently have in my house is greatly appreciated. Soft Scrub ®  is honestly amazing me with their new and improved products. I've learned about them in the past few months from trying them out and writing reviews.

Win an Ultimate prize pack from Betty Crocker Ultimate Meals and Mixes

So, how's the dinner time prep going? The kids are back in school, and  then after school is sports, band practice. Do you have the taxi light on top your car on? Sound familiar? I can relate. Those nights of soccer practice and games kept us moving. I am the late afternoon here on the East Coast, and glad to have my dinner thoughts together. How did I do it? The ultimate way, with new Ultimate Hamburger Helper from Betty Crocker ®, that's how. I whipped up, I'm calling it that, because it was easy to prepare and cook.

I used organic ground beef. In that same skillet, add and stir in: 1 cup o

Giveaway of Three Copies of Les Misérables on Blu Ray DVD combo Pack

You know that part of a DVD that prompts you to select play, scenes, bonus, set up while bits of the movie play? I did not get past that for several plays through the song "Do you hear the people sing" with  people of France waving their flag, and singing about they will not be slaves again.  The song is so moving, so powerful. It can stir up your the strength within your soul, it can remind you of the freedom of being an American, and it can bring you to tears of sadness, happiness, and joy. Now on to select play: I saw Les Misérables at the preview screening last year and was captivated, motionless in my seat. The DVD has the same effect. You'll be taken back to another place, another time. The cast is perfect, the singing is moving, and the scenery is real old world "Paris". As I watched Les Misérables it's a reminder to myself, a wake up call for us all to be humble, be better. To forgive each other, let go of our egos, help each other at times of need,
