Fighting Temptation as a Catholic During Lent Season Week 3
If you're Catholic then you know and feel the struggle of getting through these 40 days and nights. Usually Lent is a time you give up something you love for 40 days and nights. After those 40 days, it is Easter Sunday the time you can enjoy what you chose to give up again. These past few years I didn't really participate in Lent and when I did I failed. This is the first year I actually take it seriously and have been following through my sacrifice.
For Lent this year I am taking baby steps which means I only gave up one thing. I decided to cut out any kind of flavored beverages. I can only drink water from the time I get up until I go to bed. I have been fighting temptation and now struggling to get through the rest of the Lent season. I've been craving a glass of pineapple juice so bad that I had a nightmare last night. I dreamt that I ordered a glass of pineapple juice and drank a sip forgetting it was Lent. It is getting tough as time goes by but still got quite a while until Easter Sunday. Let me know about your role during this Lent season down below.
