Lent 2008

January 17, 2008 § Leave a comment

Wow! Lent comes early this year.  February 6 to be exact.  That means it is almost upon us and I still have some minor Christmas decorations to store.  (mostly my end of the season floral “to good to pass up” deals).  Each year we try to make our family Lenten sacrifice something meaningful.  We also encourage the children to “give up” something within their abilities to manage.

Several years ago we gave up TV.  It worked for us, in fact after a couple years of giving up TV as a family for Lent we gave it up entirely.  We still own a TV and use it for watching videos, but we no longer have cable or any type of “station”  — I am considering hooking up some rabbit ears so I can watch Masterpiece Theater’s Complete Jane Austen.  I am ecstatic! They will be showing all the books.  I wouldn’t resubscribe to cable for it… but a set of rabbit ears I can handle.
