What are you giving up for Lent?

Yes, today is Mardi Gras. But tomorrow is Ash Wednesday, where guys like me go around all day with dirt on our foreheads.

What am I giving up for Lent? Soft drinks. All of ’em.

What am I doing to make myself a better person? Committing myself to waking up before 8am every day (that means weekends). Yep, it’s in writing, so Mrs. Kenney can nag me all she wants, send in the kids, and wake me up. It’s done.

Lent is typically associated with sacrifice, something that we as Americans hate doing. But it’s not about mere sacrifice. It’s about Christ, understanding what He went through, and preparing ourselves for Easter Triddum. Focus would be a better word, especially in such a narcissistic, selfish world.

Remember! Thou art dust. And to dust you shall return…
