Lent

I've decided to observe Lent this year. I tried telling my sister that I was celebrating Lent, but, it is not something you celebrate, it is to be observed and respected. I am observing Lent this year.

I don't know a lot about catholicism, but Lent seems like kind of a cool idea. I mean, it is fasting in a sense, right? And being LDS, I do that once a month anyway. But Lent is different. A) It's 40 days. B) You get to choose from what (or whom really) you fast.

I've decided on a health oriented Lent. Since a mission pretty much takes care of everything else I could give up, (cell phone, ipod, laptop, pants...) I'm giving up unhealthy foods. Not just sugar, but fast food and the like. I contemplated giving up a person, but once again, the mission makes it so I can give up everyone! However, if I were not going on a mission, I think my Lent sacrifice would be quite different.

So- here's to observing Lent! Happy Ash Wednesday everybody!
