It's torturous, to crave the things you really want ... especially during Lent. I was hungry on Ash Wednesday, I ate and ate on Thursday and now it's a no meat Friday, and I am so deeply famished again.
I feel like I'm starving, even though I know how well off I am and how good my life is. And yet, I want more. Giving things up for Lent, and life in general, is painful. Oh the humanity!
Someday, if I'm lucky enough to get to heaven, I will want for nothing, for everything will be there waiting for me. The hard part is suffering through this human existence of flesh and blood until that fateful day when I learn my fate for the rest of eternity.
