On Ash Wednesday, I outlined my goals for Lent. Here’s how I fared on Days 18-19……

Counting My Blessings – Five Things for Which I Am Thankful (listed in no particular order & without explanation):

  • Day 18
    • Indoor heating and air conditioning.
    • The ability to bear children.
    • Bishop Joseph Walker, of Mt. Zion, Nashville, TN.  For making me believe.
    • The study of psychology.
    • Free will.
  • Day 19
    • All of my electronic gadgets, and the brains that invented them!
    • White noise.
    • Pasta.  Even ramen noodles, which I happen to love.
    • The thesaurus.
    • My strengthened confidence and assertiveness.  I used to really struggle with those.

Fasting Research of the Day: 

Nonprofit/Charity of the Day:

  • Day 18 – None.
  • Day 19 – YMCA.  Their services reach far beyond what I’d assumed.  One of my favorites is their partnership with Walmart to provide needy kids with meals during summer vacation when free school lunches are not available to them.

Swear Jar Contribution: 

  • Day 18 – $0.00
  • Day 19 – $0.25

Stockpile Item to Donate:  

  • Day 18 – CVS Flexible Fabric Bandages, 39-ct.
  • Day 19 – CVS Sore Throat Relief Pops, 20-ct.

If anyone else is doing something special for Lent and could use some encouragement, please feel free to leave a comment about it!
