In Response to Re: Anybody give up goodies for Lent?:
The object of Lent is to get even closer to Jesus. Giving up things we love to have is one thing, but trying to make positive changes in yourself during these 40 days help us to reflect and hopefully become better people. We also celebrate the Resurection every day, but this I like acknowledging that we too can live Christlike even though we are sinners and he was not, but accepted his crucifixion because of love of us. Sorry for preaching, but sometimes we forget that we are "One Nation Under GOD"

Giving up something for lent is OK but I have always admired those who use lent to make positive changes. Try to be more loving and helpful. One e-mail I got recomended trying to be kinder to everyone we meet because everyone is fighting some kind of battle,.
