I don’t think I’m ready for Lent this year.
I’m pretty sure I wasn’t ready for Lent last year.
I keep fantasizing about this epic plan for Lent where I take 40 National Geographic worthy photos, splice them with 40 completely original, hand crafted, life changing quotes, then I give away all of my personal possessions and eat nothing but oats a kale juice for 40 days. Somehow I come out on the other side having completed a crash course in sainthood and become a guru for all things spiritual – as though somehow I’m the first person to actually, seriously, consciously, observe Lent. Its a 2000 year old practice, Chrysten. Don’t reinvent the wheel here.
Reality? I’m a busy, selfish human and all I want is to be
So ready or not, I’ll take whatever Lent has for me…
