There are things that happen in life that I can't tell my friends and family about. However, a person can't keep everything inside!

Random Things I Can't Tell Regular People

Wednesday, March 23

I gave up chocolate for Lent. It seems petty; it's not a real "fast," and it doesn't really affect my life much. I did it as a kind of experiment, to see if it'd be good for me. I'm not sure if it was. I guess it was, I do enjoy chocolate and I gave it up in every form: Hot chocolate, chocolate donuts, Smarties and cookies - nothing. Not that giving up chocolate makes me suffer like the Jesus' 40 days in the wilderness, or the Israelites in the desert for 40 years. It does make me remember them though, as I bypass the vending machine.

What was likely more valuable was the daily bible reading schedule I followed. I read all about the Isrealites leaving Egypt (Exodus) and God's frustration with their apathy (Jeremiah). All He wanted was his children to humble themselves and put God in his place as King. They refused and God sent "reminders" (ie. enemies to overtake them) and kept telling them he wanted to save them, if only they'd repent.

I don't know about next year, but this year, I think Lent was a success. But, I am looking forward to a high quality dark chocolate on Easter Sunday.
