Well, Lent has begun. Yesterday was Ash Wednesday.
I am not currently Catholic, but I grew up Catholic. We are non-denominational Christian, now.
My church doesn't follow all the Lenten traditions, but I still like the tradition of giving something up or taking on something new, as a way to better myself and my faith.
I have given up Facebook. It was funny how many times I lamented that I didn't have time to read my Bible, there weren't enough hours in the day. But I checked Facebook several times each day and I'm sure that added up to several minutes. I didn't post things very often, I just had to be updated by other people's information. It's the second day and I am still finding it tough. I used to get on FB to play a couple games, as well, often needed to get my "daily spin" on all of them. More time disappeared.
I enjoyed my Bible time the last two days. Today I read Isaiah 42:10-17, which I hadn't taken the time to read, that I remember. It was nice. :)
I have also given up snacks after dinner. Last night was very difficult, but I was successful. We'll see how that continues! :)
I hope all is well with you Reader.
