Saturday after Ash Wednesday
Today is quieter than yesterday but then I’m awake early and sirens aren’t calling danger!
At least not in our neighborhood.
Another line from Isiah has caught my attention today:
If you remove from your midst oppression, false accusation and malicious speech…Then light shall rise for you in the darkness.
What that says to me is remove the oppression and worry from my own mind.
I can take this time to remember what it is that calls me to this spiritual life anyway. It’s always the same thing: being comfortable in my body, trusting my life, being at peace.
Today, this moment, is a good time to renew my goals for this Lenten season: maybe it’s a good day for all of us to remember and renew our goals.
Our community is focusing on healing this Lent. What needs healing in your life? What do you need to do to reach that goal?
Make a list. Choose one goal. Practice it every day.
