7 Posts in 7 Days: Pick Jen’s Lenten Discipline!

So Lent starts next week and I’m trying to come up with ideas for my Lenten discipline this year. In the past, I have…

-given up meat (and ended up vegetarian for 5 years after)
-given up chocolate
-given up soda
-given up swearing (which lasted all of one day though to be fair, I was pregnant)
-taken on the making of afghan squares
-taken on blogging about faith daily (2012)
-taken on blogging about religious music daily (2013)

I know! I’ll take a page from Fr. James Martin, S.J. and let someone else determine my Lenten discipline this year! Rafflecopter for the opportunity is below. Winner will be chosen next Tuesday at 12:00 PST and notified by email. You need to give me my discipline by 11:59 PST that evening.

I should probably clarify that there are a couple limits:

1.) I’m pre-diabetic so I *have* to eat — no surviving on bread and water.
2.) Assume that whatever I do needs to be Daniel-friendly.
3.) It cannot break any commandments or rules of the church.

  1. Most years I add things to my routine like I try and go to adoration 1-2 times a week. One year I gave up playing games online. That was kind of hard. The bad thing for me giving stuff up I end up finding other time wasters to fill the time instead of prayer.

  2. Oh, I was supposed to say what I’ve given up: complaining, TV, those are the two that really stand out. I’m still working on this year.

  3. not exceeding the speed limit (at all… even by 1 km or mile…) that’s a good one for discipline and planning ahead, leaving early enough to get there on time to be respectful of the other peoples time
