What are you giving up for Lent?
Posted 22 February 2011 - 11:57 AM
Giving something up or adding something DOES work for me - every time I want a coffee during Lent and I realise I can't have one, I'm thinking of why I've given it up, so it puts God and Lent to the forefront of my mind.
Not sure what I'll give up this year - when does Lent start? (I'm completely out of the loop now I'm not at work and hearing of pancakes on Shrove Tuesday!) I think I might make it a 'do something' year again, maybe something to do with exercise and getting out of the house now that I'm sitting at home
Thanks for the topic, Lent hadn't even crossed my mind yet this year!

Chocolate would be impossible for me to give up- I have to stop so many other delicious things in pregnancy, it just wouldn't fair to say goodbye to chocolate as well!

I gave up having my hubby around to help during the week and also just having him around - because from just before lent hes been working away during the week. I didnt have a choice in this but i thought it was a good thing to say im giving up
but that may be cheating I guess its how i handled it.
Next year ill make a conscious choice it sounds like its very positive thing for yourself as well as your faith
