What to do about Lent

Lent is here today. Last year, I didn't do anything in particular for Lent, and when Easter finally came I felt a bit guilty - must be the leftover Catholic in me.

This morning, I came upon a Reflection of Lent written by Nancy Kane on the Midday Connection facebook page (scroll down a bit to find it) which contains some great practical ways to reflect upon and prepare for Lent.

I've chosen to do a few of the spiritual practices suggested, to refocus and reaffirm His place in my life. And, just to make sure I don't wimp out, especially during fasting, I'm also going to ask a friend to join me, to help hold me accountable. If you like to join in and could use some encouragement, Email me.

Liz, this pansy cross is beautiful! My mom always gives up chocolates for Lent along with meat on Friday.

I'm no longer Catholic but I do understand about the guilt that comes when raised Catholic. ;)

Thanks, Ang!
I'm not
Catholic anymore either, but I find that I miss the extended time focusing on the significance of the cross and sacrifice He made for us prior to lent. So, I kind of celebrate a "Protestant Lent."
