Every year when Lent rolls around I try to give up something that not only challenges me, but somehow betters me. This year I have decided to give up something that I really enjoy but I do not need. I’ve also decided to give up other things that do not nourish me like gossiping, complaining, comparing myself to others, and losing my temper. As a human being I know I am not perfect, nor do I even try to be, but I can be a better version of myself. Each day of Lent (and hopefully after) I will try my best to be a Godly, humble woman and let go of the behavior that takes me away from knowing Christ.
