To all the Catholics (or anyone else observing Lent), what did you give up this year? I'm not drinking any alcohol for 40 days or nights [I don't go in for the cafeteria Catholic version where you can indulge on Sundays]. It's surprising to me how many cocktail parties, etc... there are with opportunities to drink. I never noticed it outside of Lent. What did you give up?

Aaah !, ... Okay.  Perhaps you were searching for the more recent one, by ' gentilily ' ?.  Similar topic.

 

I thought She may have run off, with you though.  We have not seen Her since the 24th of February, 2018. Perhaps she gave up blogging for Lent.

 

Yoo Hoo, ... Where are You ?, ... Dear Gentle-Lily ?.  Mr. Born is pining, oops !.... humming for you.

 

Don't worry Sir, we shall find her, hopefully real soon. 

 

Take Care.

Today is a good day! So Mr. SL the spiritual assignment would be 1st Samuel chapter 20, also Matthew chapter 10 focusing on the 16th verse. Enjoy touche.

 

Once one finds love they no longer need to seek companionship, unless they are a wolf in sheep clothing.  

 

But remember there is a difference in love levels, unconditional is 100, that's my preference. 

 

However friendship is golden when it is base on God's teaching concering love. 

 

The Apostle Paul thought he was right until he had a close encounter with God, then he became Transform, and after his transformation he spent a lot of time teaching how wrong he was. Acts chapter 9 entirety enjoy. 

 

 

 

 God bless love and peace.

 The one and only Mr. Born1top.

Dear Bambi, I sure you'd look great in a habit with rosary beads. Dear Amatax, I wouldn't expect any lightening, it's not about giving things up or else, it's more like, let's give something up as a sacrifice to remember sacrifices made for us. Dear Kitten, Now you've got the right idea! Yes, it's hard to let go of your kids but they will do you proud and they know you're still always there for them as their mom. Helping your friends and particularly the family of 4 is fantastic! "Those who bring sunshine to the lives of others cannot possibly keep it from themselves."

A friend suggested that I give up picking up men on the beach, so I took her suggestion.

This is the first year of my life I haven't given anything up. Typically I give up chocolate or new books. This year, I guess I gave up Lent. (So far I have not been struck by lightning or anything. Keep your fingers crossed.)

I gave up sex. For Lent. Before Lent. Probably after Lent. At least I'm still allowing myself chocolate.
