Giving up for Lent

I told everyone I was giving up NZ for Lent but they all said it didn't count as I wasn't leaving until two days after Lent started and would be back two weeks before it ended. Having landed in Singapore on route to Manila I agree, how can I possibly be depriving myself when I am having such fun. I guess it will have to be Coke Zero and chocolate after all. At least my family will not be harmed in the course of this lent as they are still in NZ.
I was also super organised and bought the Easter eggs before I left NZ. I hope they don't melt while I'm away.

Glad you are having so much fun! I gave up soda a couple of years for Lent, but now I'm cured of the habit so I have had to think up something else to give up (NOT blogging).

Many years ago I gave up sugar in my tea, I can't stand sugared tea now. But I've never managed it with coffee. Good luck with your visit overseas. Jane x

I rarely give up anything anymore; instead, I focus on prayer time, which is a bigger struggle for me, and it does actually do more for preparing me for the next season on the church calendar!

Enjoy your trip.
