So Lent is something that I never really even considered doing until last year. Isn’t that something that Catholic people do? Well that’s what I always thought, but I started realizing that more and more Protestants that I know are doing it and figured, giving something up for 40 days to better focus on the sacrifice our Savior made sounds like a great idea.
Well Wednesday I was thinking about how last year I decided it was something I wanted to try, only I didn’t until it was too late. So Wednesday I decided to check out when Lent is this year, turns out it started that day giving me no time to think about what I wanted to give up. Tonight I decided I’m not going to let that stop me and I’m just going to do it for 38 days. Somehow I think that’ll be enough for its purpose to be served.
Now the issue is what to give up? While I was working at Dutch Bros. tonight, a customer came by and told me about how she and her sister chose what the other would give up and it sounded like an interesting way to go about it. That way the temptation to take it easy on yourself wouldn’t be a problem. I’m pretty sure I’ve got my mind made up but just for kicks, I’ve got two questions. For those of you who know me- which should be pretty much all of you, I don’t get too many strangers reading my blog- what would you suggest me giving up for Lent and then if you’re participating what are you giving up?
