Lent

So if you are Anglican or Catholic – it’s time for Lent again. Happy belated ash Wednesday- sorry my mind has been very scattered and this cold weather freezes my brain…I now remember why I ran away from this place back when.

Anyways since I am not fasting for this Lent and I am not ready to give up anything, it took a lot of thinking on my part to figure out how to glorify God some more this lent period. I have opted to focus on learning new things…I will be attempting to follow crochet patterns and make a few teddy bear blankies and maybe even booties and hats with suspender sets. Maybe even a baby cardigan..might sound simple but I am terrible at following patterns when they become too detailed.

I also intend to take a few classes, tidy up a few pending certifications. Do a lot of shopping for other people (the best feeling ever) and just give thanks for how far things have come in my life.

The one thing I certainly do know this Lent period is that many things aren’t perfect but I am extremely grateful for all I have.

How about you? If you arent observing lent, what are you up to these 40 days? If you are- feel free to share what you will be giving up to encourage the rest of us?

  1. I’m catholic but I’m also not observing lent this year. As for what I’ll be giving up, hmmmm dunno yet seeing as I don’t have many vices. I would have said a favorite food, but I don’t do favorites either soooo still thinking.

  2. Not fasting I meant to say. Of course I’m observing lent.

  3. When lent rolls around, I am always forced to admire muslims. Yes noone knows anyone’s heart and it is the heart that counts, but I do admire how they easily go into fasting mode and observe it the entire time.

    I get bad dizzy spells when i’m hungry. Add me being infront of a computer and looking at excel spreadsheets, i literally cannot function. So fasting during the week hasn’t been possible for me. sigh.

    what to give up…….
