I’ve never been an observer of Lent. I don’t give anything up. I have known folks that do. My Sister in Law and nephew are two. Last year dear Sister in Law gave up Pepsi and Chocolate – a big group of us went to The Cheesecake Café – she was pretty restricted on her cheesecake choices….. many, many involved some form of chocolate. She stuck to it, I was impressed.
This year Big Sis has decided to participate in a Lent Offering and is giving up cookies. You can tell she’s taking it seriously by what she has chosen – she really loves cookies. I can already see the effects of her sacrifice, my marathon cookie baking of last weekend is still around and it’s Friday…….. I know crazy hey???
I wish her the best. I think it’s great that she is participating. Once again this season will pass without me giving anything up, but I did get to pondering…. What would I give up????
I didn’t have to ponder too long…..
If I were to choose something that would be a real sacrifice I’d have to choose.
I do love my coffee, in fact I’m drinking one now – strong and black – mmmmmmmmmmm……
No coffee for over a month……..
The thought makes me shudder……….. maybe next year!
