I wanted to have a beautiful, poetic post for you today.
I wanted to share how important I think it is to participate in Lent.
But I got nothin'.
What I do know is that this song, has been rolling around in my head for a week. It has woven its way into my heart and stirred me to action.
Thank you Jennifer for introducing me to this song!
I want Lent to be a time of purification. I want Lent to be a time of sacrifice and quiet so that I can hear what the Lord would like to tell me.
I think this describes Lent beautifully: Although the practices may have evolved over the centuries, the focus remains the same: to repent of sin, to renew our faith and to prepare to celebrate joyfully the mysteries of our salvation.
Are you participating in Lent this year? I'd love to hear about it!
