I’m thinking about Lent.
I was raised Southern Baptist, so Lent isn’t something I have ever formally observed. In past years, I’ve recognized it but really haven’t made it a huge deal.
I’ve really recognized the importance of sabbatical, though. A few years ago I felt God calling me to take Lent off from blogging, and it was a fruitful step back. Since then, I’ve routinely taken the Lenten season off blogging, and it’s been a good and refreshing break.
I took off a good chunk of 2013, and I don’t feel the need to rest the way I have in past years. I haven’t ruled out my yearly Lenten sabbatical, but I’m wondering about how to approach it.
Do you have any ideas, any recommendations? Anything you’d like to see here at What She Saw as we move through Lent, if I indeed continue blogging through that time?
How do you recognize Lent, personally or corporately? Do you incorporate it into your blogging habits and content?
I do want to be more diligent and intentional about staying still and close to the Lord through Lent, regardless of what I decide about blogging. I think, regardless of what we choose to do or not do through this season, it’s ultimately meaningless if we aren’t seeking the Father’s face.
