No Food Sacrifices for Lent this Year!
The season of Lent is upon us. As a good Methodist, I must observe Lent by giving up something. In the past, I have given up Diet Coke (perhaps my unhealthiest habit). The sacrifice has had some lasting positive results. I have drastically cut back on my Diet Coke consumption. This year, I have Methodist friends giving up food addictions like sugar and chocolate. Instead of eliminating a food item from my diet, I am trying to purge negative thoughts from my mind and negative words from my conversations. Trust me, it is a greater challenge than giving up food, but is something I so need to do. Heaven help me!
