CoT:

We are in the middle of Lent – a Christian season in which we give up something in order to gain something better. We give things up like sleeping in, or a vice, in order to gain something like self-control, discipline, and the freedom to walk with Christ. I pray, as we embrace the suck, that we gain in every aspect of our lives things that enrich our lives. Today, we gave up the fart sack of comfort and entered the gloom of early morning exercise. It may have hurt, but we’re better for it. Closing prayer.
