Generally, every year, I try to give something up for Lent. Yes, yes, I am still one of those old school give-up’ers instead of the newer, hipper take something on Lent practicioners. There is something about the giving up – that connects me. To my body, to my day, to a truly holy season of Lent.
How I come to the idea of giving up – varies from year. I gave up TV one year, something I highly reccommend. Although for the reality viewer (I was at shrove tuesday pancake dinner and "coming out" about being a reality viewer was the topic post-pancake) this might seem like undue torture. If I can encourage you at all – try this one at home.
I don’t know what I will give up this year. It can’t be smokes like Sister Roberta, I am already 52 days into that non-action. Whatever it will be, I will report it back here.
What are you doing for Lent this year? (Really, like I’d love it if you are stopping by to say hi and tell me what you are doing this year. Nothing? Adding? Who cares – the filet o’ fish sandwiches are cheap on Fridays and I am totally pumped about that… whatever.)
