Forty Bags for Forty Days

by admin on February 12, 2018

It’s that time of year again! I actually look forward to Lent. I know that might sound strange, but I find it to be the extra kick in pants that I need to make changes that I’ve been thinking about.
I’m inviting you to join me! Here’s how it works:
Each day, as you go about your day, try to fill a bag with the detritus and stuff that comes into your home and no longer serves a purpose in your life. Now, don’t get anxious! It can be a small plastic bag from CVS or it can be a large contractor sized bag (more than a few of those have left this house!)
The point of it is to clear our homes and therefore clear our minds to receive the Lord with an uncluttered heart, mind and home.
If you don’t manage to get a bag together each day, don’t throw in the towel (unless of course you don’t need the towel, in which case, have at it!). Even the pile of mail destined for the recycle bin counts.
So, join me as we unburden ourselves this Lent. Please join in the comments below so we can cheer each other on!

I’m in! I had been thinking along these lines anyway, but I could definitely use a shot in the arm, or even a kick in the pants!

Jaws theme plays……“We’re gonna need a bigger bag.”

This sounds wonderful! Count me in! Having some encouragement will make it less daunting! 🙂
