This is hard

I gave up Facebook for lent (the whole 6 weeks)! This is probably one of the hardest things I have ever done...yes harder then giving birth to 2 babies. It is so easy, with the smart phone, to just check what is going on. Most of the time I would check it while nursing, but I was really on it more than that. A commercial break, a passenger in the car, in the bathroom (laugh if you will), and even while waiting for noodles to boil.

I really want to be living life more instead of having my face looking at a screen. But how can I do that when I get this (see above picture)? This is an email, from Facebook, telling me all that I am missing out on! I can honestly say that I have never gotten one of these. Sad, I know. This must be the devil tempting me. aaauugg. He is making it so hard! I guess I can expect one of these every week. Great. Just making something that is already hard for me, even harder. I think I can. I think I can. I think I can.

What are you giving up/ doing extra for lent, if anything? Is it really hard for you? How are you getting through? How is the devil temping you?


  1. Hi Tracy! It is Suzanne. I haven't received anything like that after deactivating my account. Although, I'm probably 100 years behind on checking my personal email. You can probably block them so you don't have to see them every week. :)

  2. Thanks, I probably could somehow. I didn't deactivate my account, I am just not sure I can go that far. I envy anyone who can. Good for you!
