I usually don't tell others what I am giving up for Lent, since Jesus tells us not to practice our piety before others. But I don't mind sharing that I'm still thinking about a POSITIVE practice that I want to take up this Lent: working on art every week.
I have neglected it sadly for quite a few months, & I feel part of myself has been abandoned. I really need my art.
Giving up a particular thing for Lent has given me a bit more time each day, so I want to make it fruitful. Sunday evening is the target time for art; if something else gets scheduled then, I will seek to open up another space that particular week so that painting isn't neglected.
