What are you doing for Lent?



Lent is just around the corner! I sit and ponder all the things that I can "give up" and all that I can "take on" but it's probably best to make this very simple.

I ask myself two questions:

What distracts me most from God?
What can bring me closer to Him?


I would answer the first one quite quickly and without hesitation: SOCIAL MEDIA!

The second one? Frequenting the sacraments, with no excuses. Lord knows, that throughout the week I can come up with a million excuses of why "I just can't attend daily Mass."

The baby is fussy.

I have errands to run.

I didn't get enough sleep last night.

I have cleaning to do.

But really, what is more important than the King of Kings? All the rest can wait. 


What are you doing this Lent? Do you have something in the works to lead you through the desert? I purchased the "Blessed is She" Lent Devotional. I can't wait to get my hands on that. 

Don't complicate your Lent, yet go beyond your norm. Do you really have to give up chocolate and pizza again? Just be with Him. Just be still and know that He is your God and He loves you! Move the distractions out of the way and don't make excuses.

Join me on a Lenten journey. Take these remaining days to discern what the Lord is calling you to do this Lent. 

I will be praying for you.
