Today is Fat Tuesday or Shrove Tuesday:  A day known for eating pancakes. Did you know…

Southerners eat the most pancakes, accounting for 32.5% of our pancake consumption in the US. Also, a breakfast of two pancakes with butter and syrup will set you back 520 calories, which is about two hours of steady walking. Yikes.

Wednesday is Valentine’s Day

Celebrate the season of love with meals and deals from a few your favorite restaurants. Lots of heart-shaped offerings from Krispy Kreme, Dunkin, Panera and Chick-Fil-A.  Details on the News Blog

 

Valentine’s Day is not an easy or light thing to face as a single person.

The Hallmark movies, charming cards, and chocolate hearts can easily make us feel sad and tired — and tired of feeling sad. But for Christians, this is no excuse to wallow in our loneliness or discontentment. This year, celebrate Valentine’s Day. Enjoy God’s gifts of contentment, fulfillment, and hope — gifts that Christ died to purchase for us, whether we’re single or married.

Being single on Valentine’s Day is OK…

Be encouraged. Check out the News Blog (and Facebook) for more…
