i am starting today... 3 full days early. cause monday seems like a good day to start things, you know? of course, i am talking about lent... which starts "officially" wednesday night, with ash wednesday. lent, as i've mentioned before, is simply the reordering of your life in some small way to direct your heart and mind consciously toward God. i haven't always kept lent, but for the last 7 or so years, i've found it to be a very significant experience.
all this to say that in order to create more space in my life to hear God & to spend time with him, i am giving up the internet for lent.... with the exception of my email. so no blogging, no facebooking, no surfing, no lolcats... nada! it's going to be tricky, i suspect, and it will feel weird ... but i know that my laptop lures me away from the real stuff of life, including, but not limited to, my time with God.
so this is my last post til easter... then we'll have a blog "resurrection"! (am i going to get hit by lightening for that?) so don't take me off your blogroll, cause i'll be back, i swear, and i'll need lots of reaffirming "welcome back" comments when i do! :)
so, feel free to shoot me an email, but i won't be having comment conversations! :) peace out!
