Social media break for Lent

Recommended Posts

Taking a social media break for Lent. It's good timing because I've seen signs in myself of wanting to present myself as smarter, funnier, or more whatever than I really am, and I hate that tendency in myself because at the heart level of that tendency is a lie and I should call it out as the sin that it is. Lent isn't really something my current church really does as a tradition, but as a former Catholic I really find it a useful practice and I hope to see you all again at Easter with a renewed spirit and dedication to what is real and good and true.

And I also really hope to have baby pics to share by then 🙂

Happy baby brewing! 

I’m not Catholic, but I admire the practice of Lenten sacrifice, too. I think your goal is excellent. Best wishes!

I'm not even religious but I think a ritual fast is a part of so many religious and cultural practices throughout history that there must be something elementally important about it.

Um...I didn't think we were social media... 🙂 We are your support group. 🙂

Happy "fasting." I usually find it amazing how much more time there is in the day when I close down my screen.

I'm Orthodox; I get it.  May it be blessed.  🙂 
And prayers for the last stretch of your pregnancy, and a safe delivery!
