Think outside the box….’take up’ rather than ‘give up’….

Lent………

So many traditional concepts……..

No fun;

No enjoyment;

‘sackcloth and ashes’ time;

isn’t it time we thought outside the box?

instead of ‘giving up’ something – chocolate, alcohol, cigarettes and many more things (though it’s a good idea as well) –

why not, for 2012 – ‘take up’ something instead?

Such as………

spending an hour a week chatting with people in a nursing home?

taking over the flowers from someone who’s always doing it in church?

collecting someone & taking them to lunch?

cook a meal for someone you don’t know so well in your own home?

start a collection for a little-known charity?

it’s a blank canvas and yours to colour in……make it bright, cheerful and happy – make it memorable……….

Watch this space for more in the 40 days of Lent…..
