To Shrive Financially on a Tuesday
Time to enjoy this Tuesday, with pancakes, bacon and sausage. Remember that tomorrow Financial Lent begins, and you will need to make some real sacrifices (financially) for the 40 days (OK, more like 46, really) that will follow.
To Shrove is:
… the past participle of the English verb to shrive, which means to obtain absolution for one’s sins by way of confession and doing penance.
If you are looking for Financial Absolution for your previous financial sins, figure out how you do it, and do it, because tomorrow you start atoning for your destructive financial behaviours.
If you are looking for absolution from me, you haven’t read me much because I don’t give sympathy. I also don’t provide a pardon for previous financial sins. If you are looking for absolution or for someone to confess your financial sins to, maybe drop by your Church?
You could drop by your bank (but maybe your banker is the last person you should tell that you have been living on your overdraft). Your banker may give you some ideas, but you won’t get financial absolution there either.
Why do I like Lent? I am not sure, but I think I love stories of redemption and the chance for redemption. Let’s see if we can have some financial fun with this exciting time of the year. Time for some Financial Redemption good reader.
Enjoy your pancakes and enjoy Financial Shrove Tuesday.
