As fresh blooms begin to push their way up from the earth, we seek stillness. We are hard at work on our Lenten listening. Around here, listening is hard work and requires a lot of effort. We are asking God to help us fast words and to listen well in those newly opened spaces.
It's been hard to lay down words. Words, we so often use to defend, interrupt, or explain our position. However, I'm excited about what we see happening in our lives. God is encouraging us with new ideas and much more peace in our abode.
We take heavenly and holy Lenten words and pray to have the courage to live them out in our lives.
The finest thing we can do in life is to grow a soul
and then use it in the service of humankind.
I'm taking a blogging break. God willing, I'll be back around Easter. Blessings to you this Lenten season.
