Don't look now, but two days in a row. (What you don't see is me giving myself a premature pat on the back.)
Just kidding. Sorta.
With today being Ash Wednesday, I thought I'd share my plans for Lent.
I know this isn't a place I usually get very personal, but every once in a while I go there. This is one of those times.
Duh, duh, duh.
Sorry, it felt climatic.
I don't always observe Lent, at least not in terms of giving something up.
But this year I feel different about it. First, of all, I've let my faith take a bit of a back to life in the past year.
And secondly -- let's be honest -- I spend way too much time on my phone. Especially in the evenings if I'm home alone.
So I've decided I want to make better use of my time. My hope: to put down my phone in the evenings (unless it's to communicate with someone) and to spend time doing other things, including a quiet time to read my Bible.
And hopefully, by the end of 40 days, I won't find myself reaching for the phone every chance I get.
Night one hasn't been the smoothest. But I have caught up on blog reading and commenting a little, written this and am off for a little quiet time.
And hopefully it will only get better.
Do you observe Lent? Any plans to this year?
