Week one: Resolve to spend nothing on yourself but what is absolutely necessary.
So far -- um, one day -- my Lent journey has been easy. I'm not one to buy a lot of extras anyway. But I've even managed to resist some of the indulgences that already exist -- like the box of Jelly Bellies at my office.
Because I'm in Nashville Monday through Wednesday and have virtually no food in my frig, I still eat lunch out, but I'm choosing places where I can have half for lunch, the other half for dinner.
Hopefully I'll have more interesting thoughts to post in the coming days. For now, I'll end with a snippet of scripture from my Lenten reading: Do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring worries of its own. Today’s trouble is enough for today.
Amen to that!
