It's that time again. I posted last year about the meaning of lent and what I was going to give up. I don't think I did very well last year with my quest. I just didn't spend as much time as I wanted to finding what was placing space between me and God.
This year I think I have found the gulf. Too bad it's CHURCH. It's mostly my feelings towards local leaders and the things they do and say. So, I will be giving up something a little different this year. Since I shouldn't really give up church completely, (because I do want to renew my covenants with God, and realistically I won't be going for a while since I have a brand new baby and don't want to expose her to the sicknesses confined in closed areas with lots of people) I thought I would work on being completely honest with the leadership in my ward.
Honesty is ALWAYS the best policy RIGHT?
-be myself at church
-answer questions directed to me honestly and fully.
-participate in the activities and meetings that I want to
-read my scriptures more often (I might as well since I have baby sleep time, right?)
-work on my communication with GOD
I am going to do my best to do weekly progress reports (I am ashamed to say I sound like a missionary) for you to keep tabs on me. We will see how this year goes.
What are you working on this LENT?
