what's your sacrifice?
I know that Lent doesn't apply to all my blog friends but if you're a practicing Catholic, you've probably contemplated what you're "giving up" for 40 days. Or maybe you're still not sure! I asked my sister yesterday, what she was giving up for Lent and she said "NOTHING"... I gasped out loud and said "You're not willing to sacrifice anything? After what Jesus gave up for you??" - She chuckled and responded "No, I'm sorry, Sister Dawn". I have many things that I should learn to live without, even if just for 40 days. Last year, a friend of mine gave up Facebook for Lent. I could do that. Or could I? I chose to give up soda this time around. It doesn't seem like much but it is for me. - and hey, maybe I'll lose a few pounds! I could've given up foul language but not sure I could've done that either.. My life is pretty stressful right now. I know that is a lame excuse, but anyhoo --- We'll see how I fare with this for the next 40 days. It really shouldn't be so hard to sacrifice things that we think we can't live without - for only 40 days! Think about what Jesus gave up for us!
