Well, looks like I’m ready for Holy Lent! Now all I need is time and energy to keep the fast so I can rejoice in the feast.

Every year I get all hopped up to celebrate a Holy Lent, but by mid-Lent I’ve abandoned all hope of keeping a discipline. Perhaps part of my sickness is a lack of stick-to-it-iveness. Rarely do I see something through to conclusion. I don’t have the energy to care. I get busy doing other things that seem important but aren’t important.

This is the year…maybe.

The bottom line is rejoicing in the Gifts of forgiveness, life, and salvation. Still there’ll be more, for that’s the way the Lord Christ gives!

Pray for me.
