I am thankful for, hmmmm, having trouble defining in words what I'm thinking about. I was going to write Prayer, that's close but not it. I was going to say God, the creator, that's close but not it. I think this thankfulness has more to do with being grateful for the relationship I/we have with God through Jesus, the Christ.

I've been thinking a lot about the Lenten tradition of giving something up. I was going to give up sweets but I've decided that since I was going to join Weight Watcher with a friend that I would have given up most sweets anyway-so no sacrifice there. I keep coming back to giving. My sis talked about me knitting caps for the cancer center locally and I like that idea a lot. So I have decided that for the season of Lent I will dedicate a portion of my time. I will use the knitting time to meditate and pray. I'm still toying with the idea of setting a goal and I'm 50/50 on it right now. When I make hats for the NICU I try to make 25 in a month. But, adult hats take a little longer. I could probably make 20, though, in 6 weeks. I'm not sure I want to set a numerical goals and I'm not sure why. Maybe instead I should set a minimum time/day to spend in knitting and prayer. I'll have to ponder that some more.
