I came across this video today. I will warn you, it is very hard to watch. I was a wreck after. But I am also thankful for seeing it, I will not forget. This seems so far removed from our daily lives, but its very real and its happening every day. It is horrible. What can we do?

So I'm checking in on my status of observing Lent for 40 days...Yeah, I didn't make the 40 days of no sugar. (I don't think I even made it one full day!) It was seriously way to hard for me. I do love sugary snacks and treats. However even if avoiding those I quickly found sugar is in just about everything! I think next time I need to be more specific. haha! It was hard to avoid. High fructose corn syrup is a main ingredient in most foods in our cupboard, I think I will work on changing that. So I have been prayer journaling, and while i'll admit to missing a day or two...I have really enjoyed adding this to my daily routine. I think it will be great to read back over my prayers in time and see how God worked through each one. So I am sticking to this and plan on it being something I continue beyond the 40 days.
