This time last year we had a church that we attended regularly and I felt more on track with my journey as a Christian. Somewhere between Little Mike's nap time crying spells and Big Mike's new work schedule we fell off track. I started watching church online or on tv. Neither one of those church going options is really for me.
I like being in an actual church. Now that Little Mike has been weaned from nursing and has almost all of his teeth I'm looking forward to making it through a service without getting tapped by an usher. All of that is what brings me to where I am now. I want to "give up" something and really focus on setting time aside to read, listen and connect with God.
For this Lent season I'll be giving up wine and soda. That's going to be rough. I am a recovering soda addict and I love wine so it will probably be a tough forty days. Also, in the spirit of getting aligned I am going to "take up" home organization. I really need to find an organization system for toys and all the clutter that collects at the front door. Our desk could use a little love too.
By Easter I expect to be less bloated and more organized. Are you giving up or taking up anything for Lent this year?
