    I'm with Rockmom on the doing thingy. However , I have decided to do something and give up something. I'm going to give up listening to Obama and do something so I don't have to listen to him for 4 more years.



    After all this is Politics and Religion.

    I gave up sodas in July 09 and have not had one since. It was tough for a while. I still crave one every once in a while but I have not had one.

    Jesus said "I desire compassion, not sacrifice." And "it's not what goes in the mouth that defiles a man, but every word that proceeds from his heart." Just something to think about as we reflect on what Christ represents.

    No sugar (desserts)...and eat fish on Friday. sugar (esp. chocolate) is very hard for me to totally go without.

    The practice of giving something up for Lent.

    Me and the good Lord are having ourselves a disagreement at the moment. I'm protesting.

    This is what I gave up for Lent: Trying to not laugh at the people who "give up" something for Lent. Unfortunately I have failed..............

    Catholics and Baptists have ONE thing in common. See if you can figure it out. lololol...............

    Is it that they don't ridicule others for their devout religious practices?

    I gave up P&R, I'm sure a few of you missed me terribly.
