Over the years, I have chosen to give something up for Lent as part of my preparation for Easter. I have chosen sweets, behaviors to change and behaviors to add. When I look back over the years I have chosen to do this, I think my favorite has been adding behaviors. One year I chose to add a blessing to someone I saw each morning. As I passed someone, I would say a short prayer to add a blessing to them for the day. I did not share this fact with anyone – I just did it. It did bring me joy and a change in my own attitude. I often wonder what kind of blessings I helped create by those small prayers (besides the blessing to myself). Most of the people I chose were strangers, so I will never know how that small offering changed their day, but I know how it changed mine. What do you do during Lent to prepare for Easter?
