Thank you for not giving up blogging.

Well said. You are truly inspiring. May I join you in your sacrifice? I need to start treating my body better, too.

Unfortunately, I don't have a TV show to give up (I'm too weak), but I'll think about it and come up with something....

And thanks for not giving up the blog. What was Luke thinking?

Yeah, I remembered it was Ash Wednesday after I had my bacon strip at breakfast. Just had fried fish and candied yams for lunch from a local Southern restaurant. Guess I'd better fast for dinner. And high-tail it to the store before Friday rolls around.

Do you fast on Fridays?

Oh, and if you google "read the bible in a year" there is a website for just that. I've thought about doing it myself since I've never read the whole thing.

WOW! You are setting yourself up for some major work ahead, friend. I admire you for that. And thank you, thank you, THANK YOU for not giving up blogging. (Does Luke not realize that an angry mob would congregate beneath your balcony, chanting your name?)

For the past few years M has been doing something extra during Lent on a regular basis, rather than giving something up. I thought that was an interesting take on it...

What a beautiful post, as always. You have such a wonderful way of sharing your feelings with us.

And WOW....you are giving up AMC for Lent? You are amazing. But I totally know what you mean when you say you are thankful to God for your blessings. Giving up AMC for 46 days is nothing compared to all that He's given you (and the rest of us).

You are a wonderful person!

(and thanks for not giving up blogging!)

Congratulations on your wise Lenten sacrifices...although it might be fun to have mob at your balcony chanting your name. Oh no, Molly mentioned an angry mob chanting your name. I guess there is no glory with an angry mob.

You cannot give-up blogging as you are the blog professor; blogging is part of your job.

That sounds like a wonderful way to do Lent! Sorta like second chance for New Year's resolution, but somehow more attainable, and more meaningful.
And who knows, maybe you can keep it going past Easter. It'd be a good habit to read some of the bible everyday.

What a great way to look at your relationship to God and your body. I think I may borrow your positive attitude for myself -- I could use a dose!

What a thoughtful post and I admire your Lenten goals/promises. When I am tearing my body apart, I also think about God and how He gave me this body and I should respect it and appreciate it. I could absolutely relate to what you said in this post. Sometimes when I am working out and doing good things for my body, I also think about God, which I think is equally important. You are a beautiful woman, inside and out. You shouldn't be so hard on yourself.

I like your thoughts on treating the body God gave us with care and respect. Great post, and congrats on your weight loss this week!
