It's Lent, thank God, literally. It's my annual time to regroup and pull in the reins of the lure of spiritual laziness. My spiritual counselor suggested I attend Daily Mass every day. For some, that would be easy to do. For me, since I have acquired a late-night writer's schedule, it's not so easy. I compromised and am attending Daily Mass three times a week. I recall the days a few years ago when I did that regularly. I miss Daily Mass. I love waking up to something bigger than me. I love waking up to Jesus Christ, in Body, Blood, Soul, and Divinity. Nonetheless, I wonder if I will continue my practice after Lent when the overriding impetus is gone. I am a sinner. God please help me. I am weak. Make me strong.
Other things I'm doing for Lent? I gave up Super Blow Pops.
They're terrible for you. Sugar, corn syrup, bubble gum in the middle. It takes me a 1/2 hour to consume one and blow bubbles. I don't even know how I got started on them. Watermelon, Cherry, Grape, Sour Apple, Strawberry. Childhood memories. Not good for the teeth at all, but I'd eat them anyhow.
I also gave up electronic Scrabble and WordWhomp. That has been harder than I expected. I want to open a new Window right now and play my games. Finally, I gave up meat on Wednesdays in addition to Fridays, and there are a couple things too personal to share. Why give up anything at all? To deepen my relationship with God by walking with Jesus in His Passion. +
