Sunday morning while sitting at my kitchen table sipping my morning brew, I looked up and noticed the calendar hanging on the wall. As I looked at the date, Sunday, March 1, I noticed the small type stating that today was the first Sunday of Lent. “Ah,” I thought to myself, “what should I give up in the spirit of Lent?” Of course my first thought (as I take a fresh sip of my devilish drink) is, “Maybe I should give up coffee for Lent.” “No, I’m too far a goner and I just enjoy it too much. Hmn, maybe I should give up sugar. No, because if you give up sugar than you’ll have to give up coffee.” (See posting titled Super-bleckh!!!) “What could I possibly give up for Lent?”
It then occurred to me…“I’m Mormon!!! We’re like…Protestants!!! We don’t practice Lent. I don’t have to give up anything!!! (Whew.) (Glug, glug, yep…good to the last drop!) Today’s a good day to be a Mormon.
