Well, today I walked into my boss' office and she asked me what I was giving up for LENT. I was plainly honest and said, "I don't know." I actually have been thinking of it for some time now and for the past couple of years have opted to "do more" of something positive or something to promote my spirtural growth. One of things I always attempt to do is to pray more...have more conversations with God and strengthen my relationship with Him. I genuinely know that the events of my life and how they led me to where I am today were not by accident. I am truly blessed to be living the life I live and have an overwhelming need to be sure I give thanks.
Googling on the internet this morning, I came across this list on http://www.bustedhalo.com/ about other things to do for Lent besides "give up chocolate." http://www.bustedhalo.com/features/25-great-things-you-can-do-for-lent
In this Lenten season, let us reflect on the aspects in our lives that make us believers and remember to focus on the renewal of our spirits.
