Day 4: faith (that these wouldn’t crash on my head….)
It’s the only ska song that’s made me sad. I didn’t think that was possible.
Your soulmate is not someone that comes into your life peacefully. It is who comes to make you question things, who changes your reality, somebody that marks a before and after in your life. It is not the human being everyone has idealized, but an ordinary person, who manages to revolutionize your world in a second…
It’s gonna be a long 40 days….
Day 3- Test
no i’m not gonna lend you my pencil because if i lend you my pencil then you’ll want my calculator and then you’ll want austria and czechoslovakia and then you’ll end up invading poland and i will not have that shit
Isn’t that what if you give a mouse a cookie is about?
Day 2- Virtue. In my mind, this is virtue. I’m working on temperance and discipline, so picking up after myself is a huge increase in virtue today.
My Lent feels scattered, but I’m excited. I’m not necessarily giving anything up, aside from a very personal sacrifice.
Basically- I’m working on developing discipline and temperance in what I say, eat, and do. I’m realizing I’m falling into a weird sin of gluttony and sloth. I don’t do much when I get home from work. I’m not paying attention to how much time I’m blowing on my phone, the computer, the television…. I’m just eating whatever, whenever. I’m not doing much housework. And I’m kind of doing the opposite of what a lot of women do with Lent- I’m making an effort to wear makeup. This all isn’t out of vanity. I’m just realizing I’m not using what God’s giving me to the best of my ability. I’m not being who I’m meant to be. And part of this is an outer change. And most of it is an inner change. Spending time in the morning praying a painful/powerful prayer. Listening to Christian music in the car. Prayerfully approaching Mass.
In some ways I feel least prepared for this Lent compared to most recently. I can’t say I’m giving up chocolate. But, I’m forcing little bits of discipline into my life, and I’m excited to see how God uses that to further His Kingdom.
Today in training I was telling Steve about the knots in my back and how I try to keep up with Yoga/rolling out since it’s helping a lot. He was suggesting a masseuse he knows. Then he was telling me how when he was young all you did was lift really heavy. The internet wasn’t a thing. Mobility…
