What am I going to give up for Lent? Growing up, I always thought I had to give up something, but then during one homily, I remember Father Joe talking about Lent. He said Lent is not only about giving something up, but rather gaining something as well. We should be using this time before Easter to grow closer with Christ. Since then I have used Lent to grow with Christ. This Lent I want to focus on the positive aspects of my students. I need to weed out all the negative, and not only focus on the positive, but in some cases, find the positive aspects. Secondly, I am going to read the Bible. I go on spurts, but hopefully this time I'll continue and find some Spricture that speaks to me.
