28 Feb Lent update
People have been asking me all week what I’m giving up for Lent. I’ve not been forthcoming with the information. Matter of fact, I’ve been pretty crabby about it. Please accept my apologies if you’ve borne the brunt of it!
I initially decided to give up Starbucks for Lent. Now, I’m a Starbucks fan, but not necessarily the kind that WON’T get my white mocha somewhere else if a non-Starbucks is all there is. However, I wasn’t giving up Starbucks in a “I could go to Coffee Bean” kind of way.
The first day, I happened to be sipping on a cup of coffee from home. Don’t drink it black anymore and hardly drink a non-espresso coffee at all. But that day I was.
As I was about half-way through enjoying it, I had an uneasy feeling. Not sick, just uneasy. I began to sense that the Lord wanted me to give up more than just Starbucks. Now, it’s coffee altogether.
And hey, for me, it’s not even the caffeine part of it. If decaf is available, that’s what I go with. It’s coffee altogether, and it’s been harder than I thought!!
How about you. Wanna tell what you’re giving up?
