Tomorrow begins the first day of Lent.
I have to admit that I have never been one of those people that gives anything up for Lent. Not really, I think last year I was doing the 40 bags for 40 days purge. But that isn't really a sacrifice. That's more of a spring cleaning. Unless you are giving away things that you truly, truly love. Then it's a sacrifice.
But the more I think about it the more I feel like I really need to be doing something, anything, to mark Lent this year.
A friend pointed me to this post on Lent.
Great, great, great post.
So, after reading that I thought to myself, what can I do to bring myself closer to God this Easter season. So here's what I decided.
I am going to pray 3 times a day. (Three specific times.)
I will read my bible everyday. No exceptions!
Each day as I pray, there will be one person that I focus that days' prayers on.
Might not seem like much, but it's all about relationship.
What will you do?
