Ok. We’re a week into it. How ya’ doin’? I’ve heard folks who’ve been giving up sweets, chocolate, soft drinks, and more. So what did you give up for Lent? I learned of one particular gal who is taking a very “outside the box” approach on the matter. Here’s the scoop…
Apparently one woman out there is rethinking Lent, and I have to tell you, I love her take on the topic. The email read: “I just decided for Lent I was going to write a hand written note to people in my life for the next 40 days. I prayed that God would show me who needed their spirits lifted and then I got your email [about that person who needed encouragement]. How wonderful! I will write him today. Please let me know if you know anyone else that needs lifting up.”
Wow. I have to tell you, that was new to me. Had never heard or seen anything like it. And, I will most likely put it on my to-do list, or I should say, my “to give up” list for next year.
Just my thoughts. Yours?
