So this year for lent I decided I would give up all sweets and desserts.

Then, after thinking about it, I realized that is called a diet...not spiritual fasting.

I normally use lent as an excuse to try to give up something I love for a short period of time just to test myself. But, this year I decided I am actually going to fast something that helps me grow spiritually.

So, I'm giving up my snooze button.

I hit my snooze button about 5 to 6 times every morning. I literally have to set my alarm almost 45 minutes before the time I actually want to get up in order to make it out of the house on time.

That is a full 45 minutes of time that I could be using to get up and start my day with God.

I've done pretty well the past couple of days and spending time in the morning with my father has been so rewarding.
I will admit I hit my snooze once, but hey, old habits die hard.

So, here's to losing sleep in order to become more lost in him.
