Lent is approaching in just under 2 weeks, and it's been on my mind lately. To me, mid-February is the perfect time for Ash Wednesday, love how that worked out this year. Last year, with Lent starting in March, just seemed off to me from the start. :)
This year, I know that I definitely want to start a spiritual reading plan, and read only religious non-fiction or Catholic fiction during Lent. I won't give up meat this year (since I'm still breastfeeding and I'm not real knowledgeable about getting all the protein I need from non-meat sources) but obviously I'll be abstaining from meat on Ash Wednesday and all Fridays of Lent. Other then that, I'm not sure that I'll "give something up." In the past, I've given up diet soda, since I *heart* Diet Coke. This year, I was thinking that instead of giving anything up, I'd just try to "add more in"; Mass, prayer, adoration.
What are you all doing for Lent this year?
