What I Wore Sunday, Volume 13
Oh dear. It's raining today, so I had to take my picture inside. Artificial inside light=not terribly flattering. But anyways, it's about to be Lent, so maybe I can count my awkward-nerd-smiling picture as my first sacrifice for the season :P
Speaking of Lent, I do like all the ideas for Lenten reflections over at Fine Linen and Purple this time. Maybe I will go ahead and share my plans for the season. The commitments I've decided to make this year are to go on the Internet only once a day and to skip lunch on Fridays, as well as the normal Ash Wednesday and Good Friday fast days.
I think it's such a great idea to start Lent off with something big like a fast, because it leaves you all prepared and galvanized for the challenges ahead. I think I'll have to eat something before my church's Ash Wednesday service, though, because I'm acolyting and my job is to carry the huge, heavy cross and assist with communion. I don't think I'm being called to give someone a Lenten challenge by starting their season off with a concussion!
