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.
