As usual, I am floored by something I read shortly after ranting on my blog. This site from my church home in LA will be updated throughout Lent with meditations from parishioners. Here is how today's meditation ended:
"That is why we set some small portion of ourselves aside this Lenten season, so that we might follow God's Lamb and become one of His sheep. What will you put away? A grudge? Self-doubt? Perhaps disbelief in the gifts God has given you?"
Now there's some stuff I could stand to give up for Lent.

When I think about "giving up something" for Lent, the last few years I've thought about trying to include the mind and the soul/spirit as well as the physical. And from an idea from Katie a number of years ago, to add as well as sacrifice.
This year is the first year I actually thought of something for all three.
For my mind--to abstain from TV during the day
My addition is to finally write out one of the children's books that are rattling around in my head.
For my spirit--to "clean house", getting rid of the anger, critical spirit and other things that can keep me from realizing God's presence.
Also--simplify & wait.
I really loved what you shared BTW!
