What I have decided to give up this year is the apps on my iPhone that I am constantly on and reading blogs. The apps that I gave up: Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram, Temple Run and Etsy. This means that I cannot use the computer or iPad to look at these either. I also gave up reading blogs. This does not mean that I am not interested in what is going on in your life, it simply means that I spend a lot of time reading blogs when I should be doing other things, I hope that you understand. I have been more busy lately but it used to be that I would spend at least an hour a day catching up on the blogs on here and on my Google Reader, then Saturday morning I would spend multiple hours reading them. I also spend a lot, a lot, a lot of time on my phone with all the apps I listed having to keep up with everything that everyone posted. I don't know if it is somewhat of an OCD tendency or what but I actually have missed my daily Bible reading twice in the last two weeks, but I did not miss anything on those apps and that is just not right. So that is why I decided to give them up. I couldn't decide which ones specifically, so that is why I gave them all up. In their place I hope to always read my daily Bible reading (I'm reading the One Year Bible), have more prayer time, read a few devotional or Christian books, do devotions with my husband, and be more active in my life instead of sitting and playing on my phone or iPad - like cleaning and organizing my house, being more attentive when I am with friends and family, etc DRREBORN.
I didn't technically give up writing blogs, but since I am not going to read them I probably won't write many either because I don't want to be tempted to read them while I am logged on. Again, I hope you understand. I did not come here to flaunt my sacrifice hoping you will think I am the best Christian ever (I'm not), I just wanted you to know why I will be absent for a little while.
So I hope you all have a blessed Lenten Season and I will "see" you after Easter.
