Adam challenged me (without meaning too but I read into his casual statement like a true-blue female) that I tend to abstain from things that are relatively easy for me to give up. Things like alcohol for example.
Anyhow, we were eating dinner with a friend who also doesn’t consume alcohol and my darling loving husband mentioned that if I really wanted to exercise some discipline then I’d give up sugar.
Bum, bum, baaaaaaa.
Oh my goodness, I love sugar.
This friend, the one I was at dinner with, the one who also doesn’t consume alcohol, she and I then went into detail about how much we LOVE lovelovelovelove sugar. In all its forms, but pie and cookies are particularly high on the list.
Followed by ice-cream,
all forms of chocolate…
But I digress.
For lent I am officially abstaining from Sugar.
Lord help me. I know you sacrificed your life for me and that sugar is embarrassingly small by comparison, but I am still not looking forward to it.
Wish me luck and let me know if and how you’re participating in this preparation for our Resurrection Celebration.
Looking for some solidarity folks.
