So.... apparently, Lent has begun. Typically I give something up. Typically, that something is sugar.

It caught me a little by surprise, reading on Facebook about the Fat Tuesday events and King Cake. I haven't really thought it through much, made a decision. If I were to decide right now, I'd choose "balance". One more thing to "focus on" might topple me over the edge!

I understand the "giving up" and "sacrifice" and the significance of it - and have experienced the reminder in the midst of it... when I find myself "suffering" in the midst of my sacrifice, I remember Christ and His sacrifice. It kinda puts things in perspective.

I will listen for His voice and His direction in this matter, but for the time being, I will sit with a grateful heart, knowing that salvation is not dependent on my actions.
