One cup of coffee before I go

As I mentioned earlier, one of the things I gave up for Lent was coffee. Today I had my first cup in over 40 days. It was good, dark, smooth and bitter. After living without it for Lent, it wasn't great like I thought it would be. Need revealed itself as a desire. This is just one unexpected result to participating in Lent. Other things I learned during this period of 40 days I may reveal at a different time. For now I plan to enjoy a beautiful day here in the mountains.

    You inspired me to give up the cola for lent. I certainly reduced the amount I was ingesting, and it certainly does not taste as good, now. But when it is all that will keep me going at work, it is still a crutch I use. Frustrating addiction.

    Hmm. Does it count if I gave up delayed gratification?
