No, I’m not giving up Social Media for Lent. My 2013 Lenten discipline is to give thanks to God for those who have helped me to grow into who God intends for me to be and become. See all of my 2013 Lenten Thanks here.
My oldest daughter and I have a ritual on most Saturday mornings. We get up early, we head to our favorite famers’ market and, after filling our bags with fresh produce and interesting discoveries, we eat THE best pizza ever. As one who travels often, I have come to deeply appreciate the rituals that I have with each of my girls. This past weekend, as Eldest and I basked in the glory that was our prosciutto and egg pizza, I was again reminded of the rituals that have developed over time with my own family members, friends and communities. This Lent has allowed me to remember and give thanks for the rituals and the people connected to them in my life.
