Ash Wednesday hit me about an hour ago. I haven’t been giving it much thought lately to be honest. When you fill your life with daily prayer and gratitude it becomes part of you; I have been quietly working on this for a long time. This being said I feel the need to observe the season carefully and add more to my life. My husband called to say hello and to remember lent…”and what are you giving up?”….I had the instant thought of sugar (then quickly dismissed that)…then fast food..(going to do that anyway)….then I remembered our pastor telling us a few years ago that as it was of course good to take something away from your routine in remembrance of Lent ~ it was also good to add something to your life. I had never heard that before. I have a hard time sticking to the “taking away”….so these next 40 days for me more info
are all about adding something I normally don’t do everyday ~ so…each day as I eat my apple I will be in thought of all the gifts I have. I will seriously ponder the life I have and what it is I am here to do…with each juicy bite….(an apples takes a bit of energy to eat! and I don’t eat them enough) I will be filling myself with not only healthy energy but the goodness of what God is doing in my life! I can’t wait to begin. Maybe you want to join me?
an apple a day
just a thought ~ you don’t have to be of any particular religion to practice Gratitude …it’s all about trying to live a giving , loving life….so eat the apple and smile!
have a great day!
