Observing Lent

leave a comment »

As stated in Wikipedia, "Lent, in Christian tradition, is the period of the liturgical year leading up to Easter. The traditional purpose of Lent is the preparation of the believer — through prayer, penitence, almsgiving and self-denial — for the annual commemoration during Holy Week of the Death and Resurrection of Jesus, which recalls the events linked to the Passion of Christ and culminates in Easter."

This year, I've decided to forego some of my internet habits in observance of Lent. That means, no Google Reader (most of my time devoted to the internet is there), Buzz, Facebook (I rarely check anyway), web surfing and this blog. 

I'm kind of bummed that I won't get to do my "Weekend Reading" posts, and I had a post queued up regarding "thoughts on marriage" but some things must be sacrificed for the greater good. 

See you on the other side.
