Its been a few days since Lent started and I just realised that I am actually surviving without coffee. Above is a pic of the last coffee I had before starting my coffee fast. It was a cheeky wee latte from Coffee Merchant in the Merchant City, Glasgow (my fav coffeehouse, btw)
What's this fasting thing all about? Well... for me... I want to sacrifice my self. Give up something meaningful for me... so that I think of Jesus' sacrifice whenever I have a Jones for coffee.
I do miss it... the smell of espresso... the foamy goodness of a good head on a latte. Its not the same hanging out with people and drinking tea... although Chai Latte does appeal... I don't want to simply replace one love with another.
It might seem trivial... but it means something to me... and it works!
What have you given up..? and why..?
