It occurred to me yesterday that I don’t really have much of a focus here. Posting every day for Lent is all well and good, but there is no rhyme or reason to themes between posts. It’s pretty much ramblings on whatever comes to mind. Now, generally this wouldn’t bother me. Anyone who knows me, knows that I have a tendency to just say things I’m thinking about regardless of their rediculocity or nonesensibility. But then it occurred to me that just posting random things for anyone to read is exactly the reason why I don’t have a twitter account and rarely say anything on Facebook. It just isn’t “me”.
While I was dwelling on what to do with this, another idea came to mind, one I wish I would have thought of for the beginning of Lent. Supposedly there are 40 days of Lent (if we choose to exclude Sunday because apparently those are God’s vacation days) and Lent has four letters in it. See where I’m going with this? I should have spent 10 days expounding on things relating to each letter of Lent! We could have had ten days of L things, E things, N things, T things. Then I am at my leisure to write nonsensical and ridiculous things without worry of having no rhyme or reason to them! It’s brilliant because it tricks my brain. So, we have about 33 days left of Lent, which means I have about 5 weeks left over. Subtracting out Sundays, this leaves me with 7 days to discuss each part of LENT as it ought to have been done.
Now for the second dilemma: I kind of wanted to start tomorrow. So we’re going to go back to the roots of Christianity folks! Jesus was Jewish, which means “Saturday” was the Sabbath for him. In light of this, Saturday is going to be my “day of rest” from talking about LENT things…because unlike Angela, I’m still posting every day. Lazy!
Ooooh, look! An L word. Maybe I’ll discuss LENT Laziness tomorrow!
