Yesterday was Ash Wednesday, the start of Lent.
With battling Lyme Disease I had already given up quite a bit:
- Fast food- it doesn’t agree with me anymore, I rarely eat it, and when I do my body doesn’t like it
- Alcohol- I rarely drink it because of all the medicine I am on
- Sweets- I still eat these, but no where near as much as I used to
- Junk food- same thing as sweets
Even my priest and family said I should only focus on getting better for lent. My priest has been very helpful and supportive while I am dealing with all the affects of lyme disease.
Well I still feel the need to do something for lent, so I decided to do something I don’t do very often anymore. Pray.
I can’t really tell you when I last prayed on a daily basis. I still believe in God. I believe he exists. It’s not just because of faith either. I have felt him in others. It’s hard to explain.
Anyway back to why I chose to pray more.
