Giving it up

So Lent started today and I was tryng to decide what to give up for the next 40 days.  I knew it needed to be something really difficult, so I narrowed it down to Facebook and t.v.  In the end, I decided on t.v.  I know you all probably think I am crazy, but I'm actually excited to see how my relationship with the Lord grows as the result of laying one of my idols down at His feet.  I am saying no to t.v. and more of Him.

There are a few times that I will allow myself to watch t.v.  Well, really only one.  If we have a movie night with the girls over the next 40 days, they love movie nights, I will partake so that we can spend that time together as a family.

Are you giving up something for Lent?  I would love to hear about it and encourage you.

This post is short because I am off to pack for Blissdom.  Yipee! I leave tomorrow afternoon.  Big thank you to my hubby and my dad for holding down the fort while I am gone.  Can't wait to see all of my blogging friends and meet new ones too.

Have I mentioned lately that I love your blog?! I hope you have a wonderful time at Blissdom - I had never heard of that before, so behind the times am I! Enjoy! And good for you on the giving up TV for Lent! I never do well at "giving up" so usually focus on "doing more". But I hadn't even given that much thought till I read your blog. I'll be thinking on it, and if I come up with something, will lay the credit at your feet! Blessings!

Krista! I love that your giving up TV, because it means that I am not the only one out here NOT watching it, lol. We gave it up two years ago and have never looked back. We did it for different reasons and I experienced major withdraw for 2 weeks, but we are using our time so much more wisely now! Hope you find more time for you now without it.
