From Ash Wednesday until today, I committed to the Lenten season. Although not a Catholic, my denomination does observe Lent as a time of preparation for Holy Week, which ends tomorrow. I avoided Facebook, Twitter, Blackberry Messaging, and (until last Saturday for work purposes) text messages for 40+ days.
I did a great job of it, too!
I learned how to really converse with the Lord, and found various ways to fast throughout the experience. It’s the first time in my life that I committed the whole way. I definitely missed the constant updates about my friend’s and family’s lives, but God was able to guide me to a new level of dependency upon Him these past 40 days.
Even more so, now I have this lovely blog to share with even more folks who wondered where I was on the internet, lol! So, did you participate in the Lenten season? What did you learn and how did you grow?
