I keep meaning to write a comprehensive preview of my plans for Lent 2016, like I did last year. Instead I keep… not doing that. I might pull that together before Ash Wednesday, but I might also not.
But this year, Elise and I did record an episode of Caritas ALL about Lent. You can take a listen here or on iTunes or Stitcher and hear about my plans to simplify my life this season. I am going to slooooow down, eliminate some decision fatigue, and cut myself some slack while prayer, fasting, and almsgiving take center stage.
One of the big things both Elise and I are doing is to give up shopping for “wants.” I’m really looking forward to putting more of my budget to almsgiving this Lent, and this sacrifice will go a long way toward making that a reality.
(Enjoy the lovely graphic from Elise. Y’all know I did not design that myself.)
