Fasting: after a lot of self-examination I have decided to give up the internet for all but an hour a day. (The hour is necessary due to an online Bible study I am participating in as well as checking email for communications with customers and teachers.) The internet is my biggest time waster and I to often get on to just check something "real quick" only to discover it has been much longer than I thought. I will have to more be diligent about what I do and focus on what really NEEDS to be done online rather than wasting time.
Prayer: I seem to do better with prayer when I journal, so I have pulled out my prayer journal again. I have become the gal who throws up the quick prayer whenever something pops into my head but I don't really spend time in deliberate prayer. I hope to work on that these next 40 days. I will also be reading 40 Days With Jesus: Celebrating His Presence during this time.
Giving back: My goal is to make 40 hats to donate to God's Tiny Angels during this season. Since I won't be on the computer as much I should have more than enough time to complete this task.
So if you don't "see" me around the internet as much, at least you will know why. I am hoping that this will help me to draw closer to God and as a result I can feel more peace, which is my goal for the year. Do you participate in Lent? If so, I would love for you to share what you are doing so I can pray for you.
Until next time,
