Lent at the Beans

As many of you know, Lent starts today. I could explain all about it, if you didn’t already know what it is, but I’ll let the people at Wikipedia do that for me.

So the big question is, what are we giving up for lent? Well, we’re doing two things, really.

1. We’re giving up dairy. That’s right, no cheese, yogurt, milk, casein, chocolate, cheesecake or creme brulee. At one point in our lives, both Mr. Bean and I were either diagnosed allergic or intolerant to milk. So, we’re going to clear out our system of something that might not be the best for us anyways.

2. We’re going to do daily devotionals together. I have to admit that I have a terrible track record at daily reading scripture and thinking about it, so hopefully this Lenten season will be my chance to get in that habit. And learning more about God’s word isn’t a bad thing, either.

What are you sacrificing/abstaining from/giving up this lent? What are you doing to grow your spiritual self?
