What are you giving up for Lent?
Posted 03 February 2010 - 07:34 AM
Normally I'm okay with all of this, but I just can't think of anything this year. I joked about giving up changing nappies and with all the time I saved, I could do some pretty amazing stuff
Seriously though, any ideas? Please share what you are considering doing this year or what you have done in the past

When I am grown up I will understand how beautiful it feels to administrate my life effectively.
Until then I will continue to torch all correspondence that bores me and to dance naked over the remnants of its still glowing embers. ~ Edward Monkton

Challenge yourself to read the Bible everyday for half hour, one book, 5 chapters something like that.

I gave up chocolate for Lent once a few years ago and to be frank it was harder than the year I gave up coffee

I am giving up magazines, but I also want to give up something more substantial, however being pregnant, I am not sure if I can give up chocolate .

I gave up cheezels one year too....instead of easter eggs, i got boxes of cheezels for easter.
In other years i've given up chocolate biscuits, alcohol, & one year i went vegetarian over lent.

I gave up facebook 2 years ago when I was addicted to it but I can't for the life of me remember what I gave up last year.

So, consciously work being really patient with your spouse/children, for example.
I really liked the idea, I found it was way more meaningful, and also contributed towards a better relationship in the long-run

I somehow doubt that stuffing my face with Caramello Koalas improves my relationship with God (or anyone else except Cadburys, for that matter).
