Today is the last day of February. I finished my last 14-14-14 and then decided on a challenge for March. Easter is the first Sunday of April and Easter means so much more than Easter bunnies, finding eggs and filling baskets with candy, and spending money on fancy dresses. I wanted to give something up for Jesus. He did give his life on the cross that day so many years ago. That is what he was born to do. His entire life lead up to the day he would die on the cross for all man kind.

Today is the last day of February. I finished my last 14-14-14 and then decided on a challenge for March. Easter is the first Sunday of April and Easter means so much more than Easter bunnies, finding eggs and filling baskets with candy, and spending money on fancy dresses. I wanted to give something up for Jesus. He did give his life on the cross that day so many years ago. That is what he was born to do. His entire life lead up to the day he would die on the cross for all man kind.
The question was: What will you give up for Jesus. (not for Lent, but for Jesus; I am not Catholic)
I said I will give up sugar, which means no sugar in my coffee, no chocolate, no ice-cream, and no wine. I can still have nuts if I want them.
Then I asked Autumn "what will you give up for Jesus?" It has to be something that you really love and have a hard time going without; except for on your birthday! I thought she would say T.V. or going to the gym or something easy like that. she said. "I will give up my mom" I was speechless. (something that is very difficult for people to do to me) Then she said. I love my mom so much, it will be very hard for me to be away from her for the Month of March. It was very sweet of her.
I asked James, not really expecting an answer, he said "my potty fee" I give him a penny when he goes potty in the toilet and a nickel for the big job. I laughed because How does he even know fee? He does Amaze me.


What will you give up for a month for Jesus?

"I think exercise tests us in so many ways, our skills, our hearts, our ability to bounce back after setbacks. This is the inner beauty of sports and competition, and it can serve us all well as adult athletes." ~Peggy Fleming
