Lent

I’m doing something for Lent.

WHAT IS LENT:
‘Lent is a time of repentance, fasting and preparation for the coming of Easter. It is a time of self-examination and reflection. In the early church, Lent was a time to prepare new converts for baptism. Today, Christians focus on their relationship with God, often choosing to give up something or volunteering and giving of themselves for others. The forty days represents the time Jesus spent in the wilderness, enduring the temptation of Satan. (source: umc.org)

Starting Wednesday 3/1 I’ll be posting everyday for 40 days – until Easter.

I heard someone the other day who thanked their fitness coach for showing them the way and he replied “Thank yourself, for taking the steps.”

So I’m going to “thank myself” and what I mean is…I’m going to find a way to encourage, motivate, excite someone elver day to appreciate who they are. Too many times we are so wrapped up in how we don’t live up to expectations – which are usually our own unreasonable ones. So, at the end of the day, I’ll report about what I saw and who I attempted to encourage to “thank themselves”.

Follow along if you like. join me. Share if you see something share worthy. Let’s do this together!
