“I’m just following the rules set by our minister,” is what I am saying.
If you actually count the days in Lent from Ash Wednesday to Good Friday, you get more than 40 days, so the story I get is that on Sunday you get a break from your Lenten vows. Now I usually forget this one, and if you are doing financial stuff, maybe it’s not a good day to go “off the wagon” as it were, but if you are giving up chocolate or coffee, enjoy a little today, but get back to your vows ASAP on Monday!
My Lent without caffeine has begun, and it won’t be easy. But if it were easy, what would be the point of doing it?
If you’re giving up your credit cards for Lent, please let me know how you’re doing. I’m interested in your progress.
