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?
