1. What’s been your best Lenten-effort-idea ever?
This year I am not spending as much time on the internet. I am spending more time reading with our children, going through all our stuff and giving away what we don't need. Some things have been pretty hard to part with even though I never thought I would hoard stuff I am finding that my sewing stash is very hard to part with even the things I don't know what I will do with.
2. And your worst?
This year also. I knew that God was asking me in prayer to give up excessive computer time and I didn't want too. That was why I closed comments. I thought it was something I could handle. I realized a couple of days into it that it wasn't enough. It wasn't really challenging me or helping me become a better Christian.
3. What Lenten advice would you share?
If you are finding your sacrifice too hard, the sacraments will help a lot. This week we didn't get to weekday mass at all. It was much harder for me to go without the treats that I did the week before. I think the Eucharist and confession particularly give us the strength to go without and to say no to ourselves.
4. And what will feature this year?
I will continue limiting my internet time, We are going to the Stations of the Cross every Friday and I will make more effort to get to daily mass the days it is on.
