Ash Wednesday

March 9, 2011 — Leave a comment

Today is the official beginning of Lent. Most people give up something or try to do something extra for 40 days. I on the other hand will NOT be.


Well because I still feel like it is something that I am forced to do. I don’t have an open heart to it. I still feel it is one of those rules that you I HAD to do while I was growing up.

So this year I am asking God to clean my mind of past experiences so that next year come Ash Wednesday I will have an open heart and mind to make a self sacrifice. Something even maybe Christopher and I could do together. I do know that probably one day during this season I will fast.  I usually do and that is just for me and God. A time to reflect on his sacrifice. We will just see how it plays out.

I am proud though of my husband for getting over that hump and giving up something he really likes. I am glad that I can be mostly accountable for him too and ask him about it.

So how about you? Do you give anything up?
