Bread and Donuts


This morning I began my Lenten discipline.  It is only 9:30 and I am already realizing how hard this will be.  I read two blogs this morning talking about Lent.  The author of one said every year she prayed for her Lenten discipline and when she got to the point where she said, "oh no, not that", she knew that was it.  I feel the same way.  I certainly wouldn't have started fasting without the hand of the Lord.  But I expect it to be an enriching experience.  The second author talked about being willing this Lent.  What a wonderful concept!  We have to be willing to let God use us and that is often our problem.  We don't want to do the hard stuff.  We say we are willing but when push comes to shove, we rarely are, actually willing.

I have already been tested.  This morning I had to go to Safeway to pick up some items for our meal this evening at the church.  Do you know what is cooking at Safeway early in the morning?  Well, it's donuts and bread.  I love bread and donuts aren't too shabby either!  But I didn't fall, I kept right on walking, perhaps a little more slowly so as to take in the smell.

I did spend some extra time with God this morning and for that I am thankful.  Praise be to God!
