I'm so Fast that I'm Fasting

Hi There,

Some of ya might know that I'm a Christian (of the Catholic denomination) and because of that starting today is the season of Lent.
Basically back when Jesus was here, He went into the wilderness for 40 days and nights without food or water. While there the devil (being a jerk that he is) tried to tempt Jesus during that time.
Now as for what us Catholics do is sacrifice something that we really like during the next 40 days.
Like for example: Sweets,TV, and other stuff.

Well for what I'm fasting (sacrificing) this Lent is using my XBox.
I gotta admit, the idea of doing it at first was kinda depressing because it's something I like to do to unwind and most of my friends are on there so I'm gonna miss playing with them.
But that is the whole point of Lent though.
 Because I gotta show God that I love Him more then playing on my XBox.
Also I guess it'll be a test of will power.
 I'm gonna try my best with God's help.

So is there anyone else out there that might be fasting from something too?
Well even of you are or not, I'd to hear your thoughts too. ^_^


  1. I failed on day one. And day 2. So you're doing better than me.

  2. Hi Sam,
    So you're fasting too, cool. :)
    It happens. Just don't give up!
    You can do it!
