This year for lent I am giving up Facebook because, if I am true to myself I can get sucked into the FB world rather quickly. I have never spent a lot of time thinking about why do I make the choice to give up some thing for lent other than the fact that it is the least I can do for all that Jesus did for me on the cross. This year for some reason I have thought about lent differently and really wanted to make sure that I have made it more than just giving up Facebook. Lent last 40 days because , according to biblical accounts, Jesus went into the wilderness for 40 days of fasting and meditation before his ministry, with that said I want to make sure that I take these 40 days to meditate on the One and Only asking him to reveal the "ME STUFF" that keeps me from experiencing his full glory in my life. I read somewhere in blog land about a lady that spends the 40 days of lent clearing out every nook and cranny in her house. I thought that was the coolest idea, how often do we let all the "stuff" physical or emotional crowd over lives. I decided to take that on as a little side project and this week I have been working on the attic, oh my goodness the attic!! It is such a beautiful season to turn from the old and run to the new. What did you give up for lent? I would love to hear from you as we walk this journey to Easter morn together.
