Where have I been?

Great question. It's been a slow blogging week. I know you've missed me.

I've waited until now to share this, but one reason it's been a slow blog week is because of something I'm doing for Lent. I've never been one to celebrate Lent, but I read something that challenged me this year. It was an equation shared by Mark Batterson: + + - = x. Make sense? Good! What that means is Addition + Subtraction = Multiplication. He explains it really well on his blog, but here's what it means for me and Lent.

For Lent this year I'm giving up reading other people's blogs. That might not sound like much to you, but I follow a good number of blogs and learn all kinds of great stuff from reading what I read. But I'm giving it up for Lent and replacing that time with some more reading in the Bible. The goal is to put more Scripture into my head so that I can better hear God's voice, live more obediently to him, and grow as a disciple of Jesus.

I've waited till now to share because, honestly, I didn't know if I could give up reading blogs. It's so easy to click my Bloglines header. But so far so good. Been reading through Nehemiah and Isaiah. Good stuff.

Awesome goal! It's cool that you are celebrating lent. I know I'm totally addicted to this box.

By the way, I think Google Reader is much better than Bloglines. After Lent you should try it.
