The season of Lent begins next Wednesday and I've been trying to think of something to abstain from during that time, something that I will have to make a real effort to avoid and something that will afford me the chance to replace it with a positive.
And, I've reached a decision... I'll be giving up Facebook during Lent. I will not be posting or checking Facebook during the entire season. To be honest, it's not like I spend hours each day on Facebook. Truly, I don't. But, I do take a few minutes here and there to check in on updates from friends and to periodically post an update for myself. You may be wondering what positive thing I intend to do in place of Facebook. I will get back on track with reading my Bible each day. I've been struggling lately with trying to find the time. I know I should spend quiet time each day with God, but I also know that I rarely do. It's one of those things I need to prioritize better - as in FIRST.
So, don't be alarmed if it seems that I've fallen off Facebook. I'll just be on hiatus for a while.
