Welcome to Sunday Snippets, a meme hosted by RAnn at This That and the Other Thing. Be sure to check out posts by other Catholic writers there.
RAnn’s question of the week is, “What are your plans for Lent?” Ever since I had hip replacement surgery in 2008 – that’s just a way of marking time – the Lord has upended every plan I made for Lent. It’s taken five years to get His point: don’t make any plans. I’m going to tell you what I want you to do and when. That said, because I need to get my sugar addiction under control and lose weight, a few weeks ago I joined Weight Watchers for the first time. Learning and applying that system while weaving days of abstinence into the plan will be discipline and denial done for the love of God. As my body improves I will be able to be present more fully to the people He keeps sending me who need my help. This plan will continue to be part of my life from now on.
Additional plans include continuing my on line Bible Study and my regular prayer practices. Between the two, physical and spiritual, I will be able to stand at the ready for His call and stay in the proper shape for the daily battles with the principalities and powers.
