Cloudy with snow likely in the morning…then partly sunny with a chance of snow in the afternoon.

Today is the first Sunday of Lent.
I didn’t grow up Catholic, nor am I Catholic now; my denomination has never required me to “give up” anything for Lent.  And yet, I always saw it as a sad time, those weeks leading us up to Maundy Thursday and Good Friday.  (The whole idea of Good Friday being GOOD is enough for another post, another time.)

Now, as a thinking adult, I find Lent to be a time of reflection, for taking stock of what is important in my life.  I no longer see it as a season of feeling “blue.”  Somber at times, yes — but not “blue.”


Discuss: Have you given up anything for Lent?  Or perhaps you have taken something on (practicing a new habit)?
