    I don’t actually do anything differently during Lent. As Holy Week approaches, I’ll focus my kids on the pertinent Bible stories. We’ll probably watch JCSS again and maybe switch the car music to that soundtrack. That’s about it.

    We don’t do anything

    I’m Catholic so my who life has been “no meat on Fridays!” I’m fine with that now, but as a kid you just don’t understand why one day is any different than the next!

    I don’t do anything for Lent either.

    My Orthodox Catholic friend gives up stuff for Lent – sweets, etc. – in addition to foregoing meat (other than fish) on Fridays. The things she gives up are things that are not so good for her health anyway. Personally if I want to give up something like that, I might as well give it up “for life.” Like I did with chocolate, junk beverages, and most fried foods and red meat.

    That said, I do like the idea of giving something up for Lent. I would rather it be something that was not mainly for my own health, though. What would that be? Maybe I should think of a few things and start doing that tomorrow. Hmm . . . I’m feeling hungry just thinking of giving up stuff I like to eat! Something is not right.

    OK, how about not buying prepared coffee . . . i.e., Panera / Starbucks / restaurant (unless I really need it to stay awake). And putting aside the saved money to make an extra donation to a charity. Yes, I think I’ll try this.

    I spend my alone time thinking of the great love that lead Jesus to become the ultimate sacrifice for us, His creations. It really was an act of agappe love. A love so amazing and self-sacrificial that, surprisingly, some people just can’t believe it (sadly for them).
