Sacrifice & Addition

Growing up Catholic, Lent always meant giving up sweets for 40 days.  At least that’s what it used to mean to me.  Now a days I view it a little differently.  Even though I’m not Catholic anymore, I still give stuff up still, it’s not because of an expectation, but because of a sacrifice.  This year I am giving up eating out and Starbucks.

This year I am also adding something to my life.  I have made a list of 40 people who have touched my life and every day of Lent I am going to write that person a letter and pray for them.  I thought this would be a special way for me to focus more on the people who mean something in my life.

Dreaming Big

I ran across this quote on Pinterest today:

“If Your Dreams Don’t Scare You They’re Not Big Enough.”

Well, my dreams definitely scare me, and I feel like they are way too big for what I can actually accomplish, but I am going to keep trucking on with them.  Dreaming and hoping that one day they one day come to fruition.  I know that the Lord has a big part in my dreams and if they are of Him, then he is going to work them all out for His good.

I could use prayers for my dreams and how to go about making them reality.  Hopefully one day I’ll be able to post that an undisclosed dream or two is becoming a reality in my life.
