#434 Ash Wednesday.

I got up at 6 o’clock this morning.
I took a shower. I put on my makeup and pants with pockets and buttons.
It’s been a long time since I’ve seen 6 am, but we decided to attend the early morning service at church because Jim wanted to come with us. We could have gone to the night service, but it made today feel different to rise early and do something so out of my routine. For Lent I’ve decided to give up complaining. As I see it, this could only result in good and it’s going to require a lot of effort for me to be constantly aware of my thoughts and words. My hope is that this could change something in me forever, and I hope by writing it down here I will hold myself accountable. I mean I’ve written 434 blogs because I said I would, so why not? Pray for us. Ben’s going to be living without meat for the next 40 days. We can do this.
