"Lent" (from wideopenspaces)

"I don't need to taste everything that looks yummy or buy everything that looks pretty or watch everything that looks funny. A surefire way to make my heart sick is to indulge its every whim. Going without does my soul good."

Read this wonderful post on lent in wide open spaces

I love this. One of my favorite things about being Lutheran is participating in Ash Wednesday, the Lent season, and Easter. This exactly expresses the sentiment of the season - not that we give up things out of arrogance (look at what I do for God) or as punishment (look at all the wrong things I do) but as a way of focusing our attention where it should be - on our relationships with God and others. Thanks for posting this!
