Is driving considered aggressive if no one is around?

Guilt - we've been given two amazing gifts:

- We were cleansed of sin

- We've been filled with The Spirit of Life

Rather than give something up, I hope to be able to spend more time in praising Him.

God Bless

"I'm Baptist, we don't give up anything."

Yep, growing up Baptist I only generally got the idea that Catholics give up something for lent.

40. That's a highly symbolic number, isn't it?
