The 40 day journey of Lent from March 6th to Palm Sunday is traditionally a time of changing up one’s experience.
Some choose to “give up” an item or activity for the season of Lent. Denying oneself is a way of fasting or being mindful, a reminder of how Jesus and the prophets fasted in the wilderness to focus their thoughts on God.
Other choose to “add” something to their daily journey. There are Lenten devotion books and e-mails that will come to your inbox daily to help you carve out a little time to center your thoughts on Jesus. Here are some links to look at and to which you can subscribe.
