Thoughts on Lent

For Lent, Loren and I decided to give up sweets. Not sugar. That’s different, and obviously necessary for coffee and tea. Basically, things that were an extra treat, dessert, so to speak. Here have been some of my thoughts throughout the last 40 days:

I mean, sure, I’m not gonna eat the cake I’m making but can’t I just lick the bowl with the batter? It just seems wasteful otherwise.”

“A dessert that someone makes especially for you must be eaten. It would be rude not to.”

“Cinnamon rolls are not dessert. They are breakfast. That’s different.”

“It’s Spring Break…and vacation! I’m not so legalistic that I can’t have one lousy dessert to celebrate!”

Yeah...I suck at Lent. So thankful for Good Friday and that it means that my Jesus gave it all, without cutting corners, when he sacrificed his life to give me mine. And…so thankful that Easter’s coming. Mostly because He is RISEN! And it has changed everything. But a little bit because I can eat cake again.
