Alrighty girls (and boys if you're out there.... Are you out there?) I think I've mentioned a time or a hundred how much I love my computer, or more accurately all of you who are in it. ;) However, it is a GREAT time consumer. As if I really need to tell you that, right?
Anyway, we are on the eve of this little thing called Lent. If you are not familiar with it, I can give you the most simplistic version of it ever, by saying that it's a season of fasting from something during the 40 days before Easter. For a more detailed explanation, I give you the great Wikipedia. Honestly, I don't know how accurate the explanation is and I'm not even sure of all the theology behind Lent, but for Gayle, it is a pre-determined amount of time for focus. And for Gayle, that involves a fast. A fast from ye olde networking which includes blogging, Facebook and Twitter. See, I can hardly speak about myself apart from the third person. Thank you Facebook. ;)
So my plan is to spend the time I would have spend here, on the computer, on concentrated study and prayer for the next 6 weeks. I am so excited because I KNOW God is going to use this time. He's already opening up the blessing.
However, I'm not foolish enough to think that this isn't going to be HARD, peeps. I'm on this thing A-LOT. I'm not even kidding when I say that I consider y'all my friends and truth be told, this is mostly how I keep up with my in-real-life friends, too. The enemy is already in my ear over this, and I'm sure many attempts will be made to throw my butt into a pit, but I'm trusting my Father. So, pray for me if I come to your mind, k?
So to recap: I'll be gone from Wednesday, February 25 - Sunday, April 12. I can be reached via email at firstname.lastname@example.org . I hope you have a really, really great 40 days! Is anyone else giving something up.... or better yet, is anyone thinking of joining me?
Love ya lots,
