Quiet about Lent
I can't believe it's Good Friday already. It has felt like both a long and short Lent. Does that even make sense? Life moves pretty fast with 5 kids no matter how much I try to slow down life. I didn't do much of the reading I had planned, but I did something I've struggled with my whole life. I let myself off the hook. I didn't beat myself up for not accomplishing everything that I planned during this Lent. This year, I didn't want to feel like I failed at Lent. I just picked myself up, tried not to whine (too much) and acknowledged how I weak I am without Christ. I mean, that's the whole point, right? It's been successful in much smaller ways than I expected. As Lent draws to close this year, I take away, more than ever, my desperate need for Jesus in everything.
Blessed Good Friday to all my friends and family!
