How to blow Lent

So far today I have:
  • Reset my alarm and slept in.
  • Skipped devotional time.
  • Left my bed unmade.
  • Bought coffee.
  • Bought lunch.
  • Had lunch at 16:00.
Evidently, I suck at this Lenten discipline stuff. Maybe my disciplines should be the opposite of what I truly hope to do, so that when I rebel, I succeed.

Also this morning, my iMac decided simply to turn off at random intervals. I think I've narrowed down the problem a bit, and it hasn't happened since, so I'll test more once I've gotten some more work done.

On the whole, today's still been good. Alone at the office all day and got plenty done. Spent some time at Caffé Vita with Nathan, which was a treat. Looking forward to training tonight as well.

That reminds me of George C. when he decided to do the opposite of everything he's inclined to do.

This reminds me of someone...

"I do not understand my own actions. For I do not do what I want, but I do the very thing I hate." ~ Romans 7:15
Well, there's always tomorrow.
I had a Bible college teacher who said something to the effect of, "Maturity is when you can realize you've been wrong, and then start over TODAY." Allow yourself to grow toward that....
I know what you mean. Your Lent list is very ambitious, though - I'd feel great if I accomplished HALF of that. :)
