Default Lent

So it's Ash Wednesday. I really thought hard about giving up SH for Lent, but I'm too scared to. I don't want to let down God if I fail. (Maybe I am just giving myself the easy way out?!) So I'm giving up hamburgers instead. I'd like to be able to do it, and probably I could but I'm just too scared to fail. Kit

Aw, what the heck. I'm going to give up SH too for Lent. It's only until April 21st. I can do this. (I hope). And may God forgive me if I fail.

I went to Mass this morning and interestingly the priest said to pick something we probably wonít succeed at, because if we pick something we know we can do we arenít really pushing ourselves to growth nor are we giving God an opportunity to work in our lives.

For me, Iím going to spend a few minutes every day just recognizing Gods presence in my life and how Hs is working to change me.

That's good Piggy Momma.

Trust me, giving up hamburgers isn't going to be easy either. (But easier than SH). But yeah, I decided to step out in faith and see what happens. If I fail, I fail. But if I don't, then yay! I have to trust God will help me. Kit

Kit, Would it be okay if I pray for you in regard to your plan to give up SH for Lent?
