Pay no attention to the affairs of others, whether they be good or bad, for besides the danger of sin, this is a cause of distractions and lack of spirit.
-St. John of the Cross
I did not want to give up Facebook for Lent, but it was the first thing that popped into my head. Then I shared that with significant people in my life. Then I tried to back track and think of something else. No matter where I was or what I was doing the Holy Spirit was most insistent that giving up Facebook would be the most meaningful.
I just posted on Facebook that I was giving it up for Lent. Now it is official.
Fr. Charlie reminds us that it is not what we do or what we give up for Lent. It is important that we DO something.
Lately I have been feeling a little lost at sea, drifting with the current, but not interested in much. My intention is to pay more attention to my relationship with God, open my ears and my heart and let God do the talking.
I hope that what ever you decide to do for Lent that it is a time of strengthening your relationship with God.
Here I am
Not too happy with your suggestion
But willing to Trust that You do know best.
Here I am....
