This time, I feel led to participate in lent by giving up blogging(and its cousin facebook) for 40 days. Ordinarily, I would not go around discussing my lent decision in public, but I did not want you to worry about me or wonder why I vanished off the face of blogland. I don't even know if my church is celebrating lent this year--I am assuming it is, even though I have not heard a word about it. This does not effect my decision though.
If you send me a message via facebook, it will get sent to my email, and I am able to read it directly from my email. And I feel just fine about replying to your message by facebook.
Instead of reading blogs, I plan to read some books:
1) I recently read "Idols of the Heart:Learning to Long for God Alone" by Elyse Fitzpatrick. It's an awesome book that you will kick your tail! In a good way. Thank you for the book mom. I may read it again.
2) I am currently reading "Don't Make Me Count to Three" by Ginger Plowman. I am only in chapter 3 and already love this book! Thanks for lending it to me Angela! You should hear me lecturing my boys "You just wait till I finish this book!"
3) I hear "Crazy Love" by Francis Chan is amazing(and tough) as well. Maybe I shall read it.
4) I am sure there are many other books out there as well!
Oh, giving up blogging for 40 days will be hard for me. Because I love you all even more than broccoli.
Lent starts tomorrow(Feb 17th). I will miss you dearly! For reals!
