Good writing, with a strong point and with life oozing out.


February 20, 2007

In my observation of Lent this year, I’ve made the painful decision to deprive myself of the daily dose of two of my very favorite blogs. Lisa is a luminous writer, an awe-inspiring mother, and faraway friend, and her husband Will has literally and metaphorically defined ‘blogger’ for me– he was the very first person to tell me about a ‘blog’, and his was the very first one I read.

But Lent calls for sacrifice, so I hereby pledge to not read either of them for the next forty days. As God gives me strength.

    At first I thought, “I don’t think that counts. It feels like he’s saying ‘I’m not going to call my best friend for Lent because that will be a sacrifice’, and I mulled that over for a minute. Then I followed the links….

    Fell for that one, didn’t I? Nice one.
