I am a bit behind in posting this. I have been meaning to write this up, but I feel like I have writer's block and cannot put any words together eloquently right now.
I have been excited for Lent to come. It is such a great time to refocus and realign priorities. I have prayed a lot about what I wanted to do personally and as a family. I was blessed enough to go on a retreat just a week before the start of Lent, so I could really focus on how to make this Lent prayerful. So, this is what I am going and we are doing as a family:
- We have given up TV. The boys are allowed to watch any Saint's videos or Veggie Tales videos sparingly. My husband and I will only watch one TV show a week.
- The boys have given up computer games for Lent.
- The boys made the Crown of Thorns today at co-op, so they will be practicing small sacrifices and doing charitable deeds to remove the thorns from the crown before Easter.
- And, although I have already struggled with this one: I will only be viewing other blogs and commenting once a week. This is the place that I have found I can tend to waste the most time, so I am going to limit it this Lent. I will still be blogging, so please continue to stop by!
Have a Blessed Lent Everyone!
