This year, not so much.
Last year, I adhered to it — under much duress.
This year, I’ve forgotten about fasting on Fridays a few times. I most likely won’t keep the Lenten promise I made, as I’m running out of time and am too far behind. I set a big task for myself.
This year is all about humility, it seems.
Learning to accept things, and let go with grace. Other times, learning to use my voice and speak up.
But Lent isn’t over yet– I’ve got a couple of weeks.
I can use that remaining time wisely, and pray for wisdom.
