Yesterday was Ash Wednesday, which signifies the beginning of Lent…40 day period leading up to Easter.  Many people have the tradition of giving up something during this time…making a sacrifice.  The idea is that when we think about wanting whatever it is we are sacrificing during Lent, we remember the sacrifice which Christ made for us on the Cross.  Of course, whatever it is we sacrifice will pale in comparison.  Many people give up a certain food item during this time.  I’ve already made a choice on something to give up during this time…maybe you might want to try it.  (No, I didn’t give up coffee :-))
