Friday Five: Practice Makes Perfect

I don't suppose we want to give up memes for Lent, do we?

I came late to Lent, so I don't have the habit of giving things up for the season. I have tried in recent years to take something on, instead. After reading the gospel lesson the other night, I hesitate to say what in such a public forum! But since we are among friends here, dear Rev Gals and Blog Pals, let's share.

Tell us four things you have made a practice at some time or other in your life. Feel free to interpret the word "practice" as widely and deeply as you like. Did you stick with it? Was it too much? Did it change you?

Then tell us one thing you might like to try that requires practice, attention or commitment. Think of it as a request for supportive thoughts and prayers, if that helps.

Let us know in the comments if you undertake these questions.


  1. Check our .

    It's my ongoing commentary on how my "practice" is going...

  2. Good meme, Songbird - you are on quite the roll.

  3. I have exciting news! My most recent blog entry (about Brokeback Mt.) was republished at SoMA Review. And you better believe that I included the RevGalBlogPals devotional books in my bio. ;-)

    You can read it here.

  4. Great topic! I'm in, but you all will have to wait until tonight when I get home from work.;-)

  5. wow, that was tough! mine are up, though.

  6. Okay, sermon not quite done, but I played along with this anyway!

  7. i played too...nice job with the subtly-introspective meme for the season of introspection. :-)

  8. Thanks, Teri. We'll see if we can maintain it...

  9. been reading these posts and REV GALS you rock - you are so inspiring. Do you know that.

    I loved cheesehead's how to survive seminary, and that erin picked up cigarette ends one lent (as well as packing in smoking) and all the rest.

    awesome women of God

    and Katherine, you are one great lady!
