I can hardly believe today is Palm Sunday and the start of Holy Week. As we prepare for Easter I wanted to share a few things with you, the first being my Lenten sacrifice. This year for Lent I gave up something that will seem very petty to many of you, but it was a HUGE part of my daily routine. This year for Lent I gave up Starbucks. You see, every morning I would wake up with just enough time added into my routine to make a Starbucks run. While my order would change from day to day my routine would stay the same. I truly enjoyed going to Starbucks and with the exception of Saturdays that is where I could be found each morning. This past month I used my "Starbucks time" to reflect and pray. This week I will continue meditate and have chosen several verses to reflect on which I thought some of you might enjoy as well.
There are only six verses so you could start these tomorrow and reflect on one verse a day until Sunday or you could keep them in your wallet or on a nightstand and read over them all when you have some down time. I think these are a wonderful way to better prepare your heart of Easter; enjoy!
