Happy Mardi Gras Day and an Invitation!

Mardi Gras

This is a traditional King Cake and bead tree for Mardi Gras Day.

Good Evening!

While you are enjoying your Pancake Suppers, Parades, and other indulgences on this Shrove Tuesday, Mardi Gras Day or Fat Tuesday, we would like to invite you to join us tomorrow for the start of the Lent.

We will be posting this Lenten Season to support our desire to dig deeper and support all in our community.

Our blog will be focused on scripture, prayer, inspiring quotes, reflections, self-care, and ways that we can all make a difference during the forty days of Lent and beyond.

So in the words of one of my favorite hymns, Welcome in this Place (Lori Zelman and Mark Miller, 2007):

Let's walk together for a while
and ask where we begin
To build a world where love can grow
and hope can enter in.
To be the hands of healing
and to plant the seeds of peace.

All are welcome to join us for our Lenten Blog and feel free to invite your friends http://marblewomen.com

Marble Women’s Ministry Team, 2018

I have enjoyed working for over 20 years in the education and publishing spaces creating accessible learning environments for all students. My teaching experiences led me into supporting schools in need of improvement and creating and delivering professional development to teachers and leaders. And then I moved into selling educational materials, programs, technology, and services. Most recently, I have been developing content for innovative learning programs in K-12 and museum spaces. For the past 17 years serving on the board of the Collegiate Corporation, I have led initiatives in women's leadership, stewardship, development, virtual strategy, and educational programs for youth and families. Outside of the learning and non-profit spaces, I enjoy blogging about faith and inspiring women. I have a passion for travel, where you might find me exploring national parks, museums, and finding the best local restaurant to eat. I capture my adventures digitally with my camera. My photography has appeared in exhibitions throughout Europe and Australia in 2019 and 2020, on television in the United States, and was chosen from over 100,000 entries to appear in a well-known photography magazine.

One thought on “Happy Mardi Gras Day and an Invitation!

  1. Thank you for this, Marcie, and thanks for describing thecake and the tree. And, I never associated the Welcome hymn with Ash Wednesday, but it certainly has a gentle Lenten challenge for us all.
