So I gave up these two things for Lent:
(Red Meat... this includes, venison, hamburger, ribs, everything that is considered Holy)
People say 'Kate, why did you give up anything for Lent at all? You aren't Catholic?' Well, for me it's not about being Catholic or Methodist or whatever religion you classify yourself as. It's about sacrifice. When I want to eat a freaking Patty Melt from Whataburger at 2AM, instead I think to self 'No, Kate. Not only will you bloat like the Goodyear Blimp afterwards, but think about the sacrifice that Christ made for you! (Slap on wrist!)' Then, I go eat a sprig of broccoli.
Let me just say that I want some Brisket Fajitas from Superior so bad right now, but I am going to wait it out... test myself, if you will and see and feel a tiny sliver of what Christ went through for us. However, come Easter Sunday, I am eating an entire rump roast... and I'm going to dip it in queso.
