Inspired by the hilarious Maggie I thought I'd give you all a lil insight into how my very pious lent prep has been and gif laden preview of how my lent will go.
Everyone has been asking what I'm giving up for Lent and I'm just like:
So my husband suggests giving up coffee...
So I finally decide on chocolate and then I talk to my friend who's giving up his car, bread, and hot water...
And so the Holy Spirit does this to me
And prompts me to do something a little more penitential.
Then the coffee-hating husband says "Why don't you join me in going to Adoration everyday?"
After getting that big decision out of the way I had to do my normal Lenten Fridge prep:
Now it's Ash Wednesday and of course someone offers me the most deliciously delicious cheeseburger God ever blessed us with on this side of heaven and on the outside I'm like:
And on the inside:
And this is me at 12:01AM Thursday Morning:
And because I'm in such a holy place this is how I'll undoubtedly spend my first few visits with Jesus:
And of course this will follow:
And this is how I will feel about my guilt afterwards.
I know. I disgust myself too.
Eventually I'm hoping my visits with Jesus are a lil more fruitful, maybe with some moving reflections on His Passion.
Or maybe I'll be over come with gratitude for his unending mercy.
And hopefully by Easter Steven and I will be so holy-ed up we'll just be like this all the time:
So there you have it folks my Lenten aspirations. What are you goals for Lent? What are you giving up or adding to your life to get closer to God?
