I don’t usually “give something up” for lent, but this year realized I spend too much time playing games on my iPad. A week into lent I decided to stop playing the games. Instead I am reading books— something I thoroughly enjoy, but those darn games had me hooked. So far I have read three books (two start to finish, one that I started a while ago and now had time to finish ) and am on my fourth. Who would have thought?!

I also gave up phone/pad games and am doing much more reading I did a lot of waiting for 15-20 min at a time the last few days and would normally have mindlessly played those games during the wait. Instead I got a full book read!

That's a great idea! I usually do something for Lent and was going to send cards to people in our church who are sick and shut in, but I am embarrassed to say this year I did not follow through.

Games on my IPad fpr Lent. After a few days I felt so free that I went ahead and deleted them from my iPad. As a bonus my IPad actually began to work faster due to the extra storage on it.
