Lent

The end is nearing, and to be honest I'm going to miss it. The biggest reason that I'm going to miss it is because I'm not the one participating (lent started right after I found out that I had GD and I just felt that I couldn't joyfully give up anything else... so I skipped out this year) , Danny is...

He gave up video games. I think it's awesome because I can't stand them... haha. Our little vacation from the controls is coming to an end, however. I can't be sure, but I think he might be a little more excited about it than I am.

Are you practicing lent this year? If so, what is it that you gave up? If not, have you done lent in the past? Do you feel like you are closer to the Lord because of it?

not this year, but Kyle and I did it when we were dating that first year. We gave up kissing which, for Kyle, is always a big deal. We did it as a way to get to know eachother better and spend that time in a more productive way. Meh, I'm sure it's not what the Catholics had in mind but it worked for us. I think our relationship became more god centered.

40 days of no kissing!!! Wow, I don't think I could do that. Maybe for 40 minutes... Anyway, I gave up booze/tobacco and took on helping with worship for the "older folks" at my church, on Wednesday nights.
