Top 5 ideas for Lent 2017

Is Easter not more special? We often spend
so much energy and money on Christmas that we sort of fall into Easter without
spending time prior to this beautiful event, contemplating, preparing our
hearts and been mindful.

Do you celebrate Lent every year, the
season that leads up to Easter? Are you looking for the perfect ideas for Lent?
Then you have the right article for this.
Lent is a period of sober reflection,
self-examination, repentance, fasting and preparation for the coming of Easter.
It begins on Ash Wednesday and end on the Saturday before Easter.

Here are a few
perfect lent ideas for you and your family:
1.       Say nice things and spend
more time with your family:
Trust me this isn’t as easy as you may
think it is, but try saying things that aren’t the normal “Thanks” or “You look
nice.” Try to say important words to your partner or kids,words like “I love
how you always help with the kids.” or “I love how you work hard on your
homework, even when it is tough.”  Remember your words form the inner
voice of your children as they grow older and we only have a few years to
really be present in the lives of our loved ones.  Let’s spend these years
wisely, treat your partner to a delightful evening of great buffet meal at Protea
or a dream holiday at La
Campagne Tropicana Beach Resort
2.       Replace TV time with extra
minutes of Devotion and Prayer:
Read a devotional or bible story with your
family and have a discussion about it at least once a day. Even the young kids
can get involved in this. These are perfect times for you and the members of
family to reflect on vital issue and retrace your steps where needed.

3.       Do not buy anything you do
not need:
If you can live without it, then you don’t
need it.  Put the money the money you would have spent on that pretty new
dress into an account and you will be surprised at how quickly you build up
your savings. 

Look at the amount you have managed to save for 40 days and donate a certain
percentage to the needy.

4.       Give out 40 things for 40
Declutter your home during lent. Collect 40
things you can donate every day as you walk around your house. By doing this,
you create a routine of cleaning and decluttering guide that lasts even after
lent. You can start by choosing one room in the house, reorganizing it,
avoid building up junks and giving out to people who need these things instead.

5.       Clean Eating:

Most people habitually take sodas daily, so
I can imagine how hard it is to abstain for these carbonated drinks. You can
replace your cravings with frozen yoghurts or smoothies as these are healthier.
Eat and drink like the poor for 40 days, then donate the money saved on
groceries to a charity or project that serves the poor in concrete ways.
