Ash Wednesday: Give it up for Lent   2 comments

It’s Ash Wednesday and although I’m  not Catholic or Lutheran, I still give something up for Lent. It’s a way to spiritually and physically discipline myself. And so……. I’ve given up crackers, rice, potatoes AND  bread for 45 days. And I’m a carb lover. I don’t eat much of those foods anyway but I do love them.  It’s the least I could do for Him who gave His life for me and continues to bless me today.  My co-worker is giving up meat. We’ll encourage each other along the way.

Are you participating in Lent?
