Dear St. George Families,
Although we have completed our Lenten journey, it is always a good time to remember and reflect on Lent as a time to fast from certain things and to feast on others. It is a season in which we should grow closer to God. Here are some things that can celebrate that renewed relationship with our God.  

Fast from judging others; feast on the Christ dwelling in them.
Fast from emphasis on differences; feast on the unity of all life.
Fast from thought of illness; feast on the healing power of God.
Fast from words that pollute; feast on the phrases that purify.
Fast from discontent; feast on gratitude.
Fast from anger; feast on patience.
Fast from worry; feast on hope.
Fast from complaining; feast on appreciation.
Fast from bitterness; feast on forgiveness.
Fast from self-concern; feast on compassion for others.
Fast from discouragement; feast on hope.
Fast from idle gossip; feast on purposeful silence.  
Fast from problems that overwhelm; feast on prayer that strengthens.


God Bless,

Jack Nelson

Make Time for Yourself

"You can't pour from an empty cup." Taking time to recharge not only helps you but everyone around you as well. With nearly everyone being home it may be harder than ever to find time to be alone. However, carving out time for yourself is shown to increase empathy, increase productivity, spark creativity, increase happiness, reduce behavior problems in kids, and help you get to know yourself better (Morin, Amy. "7 Science Backed Reasons You Should Spend More Time Alone." Forbes. Forbes Media. 5 Aug, 2017. Web. 29 April, 2020.) Who can argue with that? Some suggestions to find time for yourself include going for a walk alone, having a cup of coffee or tea before everyone wakes up, reading while others are busy, taking a long shower, taking a nap, or taking up a new hobby for 15 minutes a day to name a few. I hope finding time for yourself can become a priority for yourself and your family...remember it is not selfish, but essential!
Some ideas for taking time alone were obtained from this video from The Child Mind Institute.
