Sorta kinda wish I hadn’t let you guys in on my Lenten plans.
Cuz it’s not going so great.
Not that anyone asked. I just felt like I should keep y’all posted. In case someone needed to feel better about how their Lenten plans have played out.
Now I’m not sayin’ I’ve totally failed, y’all. Because I haven’t. Mmmm’kay? I mean, besides the Target popcorn incident, and the run in with way too much guacamole, I’ve been hanging in there. No sweets. And
almost no snacks. It’s just, well, I’m two weeks in and really not looking forward to the next four weeks.
And that reality makes me feel like a chump. Never having experienced a true Lenten season, I’m not sure what I’m supposed to be feeling, but I don’t feel like I’m heading in the right direction.
Or maybe that’s just my sugar addiction talking?
It feels like I’m just going through the motions much of the time. Focusing on what I’m doing instead of what I’m thinking.
And where my heart is.
Anyone have some advice for me? Ideas? Something that has really spoken to your heart during a time you were struggling to seek Him?
Or some secret way to satisfy a sugar craving without actually eating any sugar? And no, nibbling on sweet Vivi hasn’t worked so far.
