What Would You Do- 2nd Lenten Friday

Verdura hinged cuffs in mammoth ivory and black jade- siiiiigh
Doctrinally, for Anglicans, Sundays are not part of Lent because every Sunday is a celebration of the Resurrection.  Historically, it makes practical sense- during Lent, there was a lot of self-denial during the week.  There had to be a day to eat normally and replenish.  

So now, when few of us practice exhausting self denial, would you relax your Lenten discipline on Sunday?  If it's a resurrection of a New Year's Resolution, then perhaps it makes sense to do so. But if you "fast" to be closer to the Lord, breaking your "fast" on Sunday could be counterproductive.  The beauty of these questions is that the right answer depends on you- not someone else's opinion of what is right for you!     

I daydream about what sparkles, unworn, in my jewelry box.  I think the most about the items I wear the least.  (That does not make any all.)    

BTW- needing prayers!  For humor and balance...Thanks!
