For one thing, instead of giving up a lot of things, I've narrowed
this year's list down to three items, two of which I've never given up before.
1: Chocolate (that's a given, or should I say a given give-up?)
2: Coffee (that one will NOT be easy; I'll have to have strong tea
in the morning instead.)
3: Peanut butter (I've been eating quite a bit of it lately.)
So that's my give-up list for this Lent.
Now for my special challenge:
This Lent, I'm going to read the entire Bible from cover to cover. This will
be in addition to the passages from the Psalms and the Book of Proverbs that
I read every morning, and the short Gospel I read every night. (If the same passage shows up twice in one day, I will NOT re-read it.)
This won't be easy. It will mean less time on the computer, and, well, let me
put it this way: My weekly book lists will be much shorter than usual.
