I got lucky: the post right before this one was written yesterday. I spent nearly half an hour writing, trying to put my thoughts into something even slightly resembling coherency…and then it wouldn’t publish. I’m not sure why it wouldn’t post, I’m just glad that when I logged on today, it was there, waiting for me to re-publish it.
Anyway, I’m taking a short sabbatical: 40 days, starting tomorrow. For any who don’t know, tomorrow is Ash Wednesday, the first day of Lent. Normally I don’t celebrate Lent – I’ve thought about how it isn’t Biblical, and I think the way some people celebrate Lent really isn’t appropriate – especially those who do something rediculous like give up chocolate or sweets so they can lose weight over Lent. Personally, I was planning to give up two things this year: television and blogging. I’ve decided to keep television, at least to finish season 4 of 24, but I’m definitely giving up blogging and computer games for Lent, in the hopes that I can dedicate the gargantuan amounts of time that I devote to those pursuits to looking after my spiritual life, which is always in need of improvement.
I’d appreciate prayers for God’s strength so I can keep this committment.
