Lent. The time when we prepare ourselves for the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
Because of this people typically give up something that is distracting them from their relationship with Him.
So we are giving up the thing we spend our evenings doing.
There will be no more T.V. in our house.
For 40 days (not counting Sundays). 46 days of giving up.
And strangely enough I’m looking forward to it. Now my Hunk and I will have to spend our evenings talking with each other rather than staring at a little flashing box.
What a wonderful thing that will be.
