For Lent (Western) [Will be taking time off]
« on: February 20, 2012, 04:17:18 PM »
Hi everyone,

As of this Wednesday (Ash Wednesday - Western calendar), I'll be spending less time on social networking sites (Tumblr, Facebook, Twitter, forums, etc.) and less time on the internet in general for Lent until Easter. I'll be taking the time to get up to speed on my prayer life, repentance, as well as spiritual reading. I'll usually be on the internet to check e-mail, news, and other very important stuff for myself.

Until Easter, I'll talk to you all later

Actually, I have decided to add you to my prayer and commemoration lists. Just made your day, right?  ;D

I actually think a thread such as this can be useful, so that no one worries about whether or not he's alright.
