First Day of Lent

I skipped mass this morning in lieu of spending time in the sunshine with my Bible and God.

How refreshing solitude is!

Just the first day of giving up "extras" in the schedule has been difficult! As the Lord would have it, I have been asked to do many things later in the week: dinner with a friend, setting a "Leprechaun Trap" (as has been tradition with a family we both know well) on March 16, coffee with my Nature Mom friend, babysitting for a family at school, meeting with a doctor in town to seek advise about medical school, and the list goes on.

Fighting for solitude is going to be a lot harder of a battle than I had anticipated.

I suppose that's the point.
