For the last few years, to prepare my mind for the Easter season, I’ve given up something during the 40 days of Lent. I don’t need to; it’s not a tradition of my church. But that little sacrifice every day reminds me of the huge sacrifice our Savior and God went through for us. This year I couldn’t think of what to give up so I prayed about it. Almost immediately, this thought came, give up your coffee creamer. What! My favorite sweet, chemical-laced, flavored coffee creamer! But I need something to buffer the coffee for my stomach’s sake! Plain milk can do that quite well was my answer. What a small sacrifice to be concerned about. God must smile at me sometimes. I hope so anyway, and I did ask!
