Ash Wednesday

Posted in journal on March 9th, 2011 by george

First day of Lent today. Went to mass this morning and had ashes smeared on my forehead. I have signed up for 40 days of no coffee or tea. Also no meat, cheese, alcohol or TV!

Not for the first time I am aware that what I am denying myself is all stuff I’m better off without anyway. So apart from all this detox, I am planning to spend more time praying or helping other people. Which it has to be said, will also improve my well being.

In some ways, Lent is a time to get a glimpse of a better life one could enjoy all year round.
