Lent

Okay so I don't usually like to talk about Lent but I do want to share.  I am anticipating a great season of Lent.  I'm giving up coke for Lent....all soda actually.  I've definitely had caffeine headaches and I've wanted it. I realize it's not much of a sacrifice but it is a reminder for me to pray for others and to be thankful for Jesus dying on the cross.  But here's the other part for me...you know I have my YoYo girls.  There are 6 of us that have stayed in touch since college.  We meet every other year to vacation together and just enjoy a girl's weekend or week (Orlando this summer)!!  Anyway, one of those girls emailed last week and challenged us to take Lent to a different level. We all agreed and have committed to praying for each other.  So, I am anticipating God to work during this season of Lent in a different way. I am taking on prayer during this season, not just for my YoYo's but for a variety of things and people.  And already, I'm excited to see what God is going to do.  I've noticed my attitude changing and my focus shifting. Our c group is also doing some Lent sacrifice and that's been incredible for me to be apart of.  Wanted to share and blog while I had a second.

That special time you are devoting to Him and praying for others will have so much more of an impact with your focus on God.
