The day is unsettled. In the time I’ve been up, the sky has gone from clear and sunny
to overcast and blustery, to clear again,
to overcast and blustery.
and that’s just the sky, never mind the email and text messages and phone calls that have blustered through, upsetting what we thought was.
Oh. And the blog. This is the second time I’ve written this post this morning. The first one disappeared. Regardless of WordPress always saving drafts, it didn’t.
So the question becomes, how do we hold on to our Lenten resolve (just two days in!) when life becomes unsettled? “Do you call this a fast, a day acceptable to the Lord?” says Isaiah.
My way of holding onto resolve is to sit down, breathe, let my fingers play across the keyboard, write to you (even if I have to write it twice. Twice!! Okay. Breathe).
How do you hold on to your balance, to your resolve to heal that which wounds, which gets in your way? Breathing works for me; what works for you? How do you untie “the thongs of the yoke; and set free” that which oppresses?
