Lenten Reflections

I found an interesting post about journaling during Lent.  Lent is a time of reflection, penance, and meditation.  While I personally take the process of “giving something up” seriously (I can’t tell you how many times I’ve wanted something other than water/coffee/tea . . . and I remember why I can’t have it EVERY TIME), there is more to Lent than just a sacrifice.  After reading this article, I believe that I will journal throughout Lent this year.  There are specific thoughts and questions listed within the article, but the major topics are:

Week One: RECEPTIVITY
Week Two: REFLECTION
Week Three: DISCIPLINE
Week Four: TEMPTATION
Week Five: OBEDIENCE
Week Six: SACRIFICE

I will be journalling these privately, but I may share some thoughts here in the coming weeks.  Is anyone else doing something like this for Lent?
