Y'all, I have just spent a good portion of an hour writing a post that I thought was pretty good. Really. But, maybe God had other plans. I am using my new pink computer---it's sooo cute! It's a laptop, and I am not used to this. Somehow, my wrists clicked on a button, and my entire post was gone....disappearing into cybespace air! Had I saved it during the process??? Of COURSE not! That would be too doggone easy! Oh, well! C'est la vie! ( Yes, you chickadees, Runnermom DID take several years of French many moons ago! Only a portion of it remains in my little 'ol brain.) Well....I can't and won't even attempt that post on Downs Syndrome and the Samaritan Woman again! Seriously.
So, I will simply ask you a question. An easy one. Promise.
Are you giving up anything for Lent? If so, are you willing to share?
I'll go first.
I am going to give up being prideful! No, I wish that I could, but I am human and that's something I have to die to daily. But, I CAN try to be focused on this and strive to "be less of me and more of Him." That's a huge leap of faith. But, with prayer and staying focused on this, God can do a big work in my heart if I am willing to step aside. One thing that I have done--and this is through much prayer--is getting up and spending time with God before running. Not after! I am trying to put Him first. It's all about Him.
