Third Week of Lent :: Source
Sweets, Treats, and Self Indulgence
This week, our reflections will be looking at “From where we draw our source of life?”
As a fasting discipine this week, resolve to spend nothing on yourself, except that which is absolutely necessary. Buy no new clothes or gadgets, books or music. Don’t go to the movies or buy coffee or candy. Eat cheaply, save money, or give what you would have spent on coffee, treats and entertainment for the week to someone in need.
Keep journal entries of what happens inside you when you deny yourself something you’ve become accustomed to or something you really want. How does it affect you? Why?
What does this teach you about where you draw your life source?
