Lent 2014

With this being the first day of Lent 2014, curious who else will partaking in giving up something for Lent and what you will be giving up. Whatever you have decided to give up for the Lord, good luck to for the 40 days and remember you're doing it for him!

Giving up beef, as I usually do, and trying to cut back on treats during the season.

Sounds great. I try to cut out snacking too. We'll see! It's sometimes hard for me, as I really only sometimes eat one meal with working night shift, but I try really hard!

So for Lent, I try to cut back on goodies, but the last few years, I've focused more on a better prayer life then on the food aspect. Taking some time out each day for a reflection slows my mind down and centers me.

Instead of giving anything up for Lent, I'm trying to be a better person, and I read bible readings on the computer everyday.
