Lenton Season is fast approaching and our pastor had placed on our hearts the decision of what to do or not do for Lent. In the season of Lent, turn the volume of life down and listen to God more often. Prepare to look at the cross and Christ's resurrection -- look more deeply.

Ideas were:
> Give up something and do something.
> Give up hurting words and use kindness instead.
> Give up anger and be filled with patience.
> Give up complaining and be more simple.
> Give up grudges and perform reconciliation.

The ones that struck a chord in my heart were "Give up hurting words and use kindness instead." and "Give up complaining and be more simple." Having a more sarcastic personality, sometimes my words cut unintentionally. And let's face it, complaining can take over your life if you let it. I am focusing on these in addition to smiling and being more upbeat/polite. Focusing more on God and less on my own personal fears.

I had considered making it more about food, diet, and exercise, but that is really not the point of Lent. I had considered the portion control aspect and the exercising every day, and again, though challenging, that really doesn't seem to be the direction God wants me to go.

The pastor suggested we read the Gospels during the season of Lent, to learn more about Jesus and what he experienced.

I had a thought of what I could do to listen more to Jesus and become closer. The breath of a suggestion - start reading the Bible beginning with Revelation, and read in reverse order. If you have ever read or tried to read through the Bible, and if you are like me, Leviticus and Numbers are some of the most challenging to work through. My Lenton discipline is to read the New Testament starting in Revelation and working backwards to Matthew by Easter.

Summarize:
Be simple, kind, and positive.
Giving up complaining, hurtful words, and negativity.
Reading New Testament, starting with Revelation and working backwards to Matthew.

The Lent Season starts on Valentine's Day. What are your plans?

I did not want to admit it, but I have a problem. It's called excessive eating. It happens when I least expect it. However, I am learning the word "NO" aloud is quite effective and keeps those gremlins away. Oh, I do repeat it more often than not, but it is necessary. I have just started working out again - easing myself back into a routine where I work out 5 days a week with scheduled workouts of balance and flexibility. Let's face it, being out of it a month due to flu and the remaining effects of flu just took it out of me. Weight is up - I could blame it on the salty supper prior to weigh in day, or I could accept that I have not eaten like I should. The struggle is real. The effort comes and goes and is reflected in the numbers. However, you never truly fail until you stop trying...saw that on a bumper sticker when I was in college. It is so very true. And my motto....thus I keep trying. I know our efforts are better than we did in years prior and they will pay off. We may not be dropping weight the fastest, but it is coming off, and our clothes fit us better.
