The Lenten Season

Today begins Lent.


This year, instead of coming up with a list of things I want to quit like chocolate and sweet tea (that would be good for me, but I don't believe in depriving myself!), I am committing myself to spend more time in the Word and with the Lord.

Life is busy and it's so easy to get caught up in the day-to-day activities that often, God time, while still done, takes a back seat. For the next 40 days, I'm determined to dive in and listen more. I feel like I often talk way more than I reflect and listen, and so for the next forty days, I want to reflect and listen, and, most of all, grow.
