Hey friends, I know things have been a bit slow here on my blog. To be honest, I like to try to share not just things about my life, but new ideas too, and I need to be a bit more inspired. I don't like to give you things you hear all the time. That's no fun!

But today's the first day of Lent, and during that time, my family abstains from things, foods, or actions in our daily lives that we can sometimes become a bit dependent on. This year, I'm only reading blogs/blogging in the morning before work so that my evenings can be spent doing other things. After coming home from work and then after giving piano lessons, I can be a bit tired, so I relax on my bed and just read blogs. I absolutely love it and there is so much good stuff out there, but I want to make time to let other things in like reading a book (haven't done that in awhile!), practicing the piano, working out a little longer, and just leisurely enjoying time with family and friends. Also this Lent, I want to try to get a few more miles in! My sisters and I are serious about the half marathon this year and I'm focused on getting it done!

If you practice Lent, what are you doing? It's always a fun challenge, and it's nice spiritually to free yourself a little and focus on all the good things that God has done.

  1. great idea!

    i usually will give something up for Lent but the last couple of years i have decided to add something to my daily routine, this year i am going to take at least 15mins a day and read the Proverbs and do some more devotionals :)

  2. I don't practice Lent. But I think it is always a good practice to free yourself a little and focus on all the good things that God has done.

  3. I love this idea! I've been trying to think of something meaningful to do this Lenten season, and I think having more free time in the evenings is a great idea!

  4. I borrowed your prayer from last year again this year. It still inspires me :)


Thanks for your sweet comments! They make my day and I appreciate every one!
