Charlie (2nd grader) informed me today that he's decided to give up Lent. This is the same little man who a few years back (around the age of 4 or 5) decided to give up cigarettes and stealing beer for 40 days. Seriously?!
I've already reneged on my Lenten promises, I admit. It seemed absolutely necessary to check in on Facebook...after all I'm a Great Aunt again today. Welcome Lilyan Francis, sweet 6#12oz bundle of joy. Yes. Seeing your bright eyes for the first time online (from hundreds of miles away) was definitely worth the cheat!
And now, I'm back on track. Eyes wide open (like little Lilyan), attempting to recognize what it is God is asking of me, and hoping I might muster the courage to say Yes.
