Prayer #103: Sacriligifice

Photo by maskedcard

Despite my belief that no merciful God would ask you to give up chocolate, this year I gave up chocolate for Lent.

Two weeks have passed with nary a nibble. However, I've noticed a concurrent, proportional rise of vanilla and oatmeal raisin products in my stomach cabinet.

Hmm. Convenient. But fair?

Prayer #103: Sacreligifice

May the letter of the law not write bonds so tight I can't breathe in its spirit.

And may the spirit of the law not leave me so light I can't attach to the letter.

Strike this balance in my will, so that I sacrifice weakness, and not meaning.

Amen.

  1. Hmmm, when sans chocolate, I find Chai and other spice-related foods substitutes themselves in my diet. If lent were not over, I'd recommend a hot, really spicy chai to soothe your chocolate-deprived cells.
