I have become a big fan of Facebook. This social media site has allowed me to keep in touch with friends near and far. I have been able to see pictures of weddings, parties, anniversaries, new homes and new cars, all via Facebook. This site has allowed us to share in each other’s joys and sorrows.
Recently, I saw this note on Facebook:
Forty days, forty items on a printed note with a black trash bag attached to it.
The note read: Wednesday February 10 is the first day of Lent. I have a challenge for you. Each day of Lent remove one item from your closet that you no longer wear or need and put it into this trash bag. At the end of the forty days, donate these items to a place that can share them with someone who can really use them.
