Lent is a time of giving
A time of giving up: fasting from food and entertainment, fasting from sin.
A time of giving away: giving alms and help to the needy and the weak.
A time of giving time: to God in prayer, to the lonely by our company.
A time of forgiving: a time of God forgiving us and our forgiving others.
But remember God loves a cheerful giver
(2 Corinthians 9:7).
So smile please, it's Lent.
