Just in time for the time of change… Time changed. Lent-change-time
Is it really possible to make substantial change in this 40 days?
it’s hard to tell without beginning – minds ravage with debates about the brain patterning necessary for substantial change like the dull buzz of the 24 hour news cycle with Facebook and Google running in the background while Alexa finds a meditation app on demand. Logic attempts to derail Lent. It won't work - some things don't change.
Experience overrides debate Lenten change takes time Deliberate and conscious decisions to “make the next right choice”
Refusing to be numbed with wisdom from the smartphone bluelight Lent expects us to go in and dig a hole in the soul So a seed can be planted. The seed of “faith” gets planted when We dare to unearth the compacted doubt and Ask those questions that it’s easier to sedate with solitaire. The seed of faith is planted in the midst of doubt Why? How? Where? Who? God is bigger than our questions and creates Spring resurrection out of seeds planted in mud nourished with time. The first week of Lent. Time to dig deep in the earth of the inner landscape and to be willing to believe It’s never too late to begin again
And so, I begin -- Lent change
My gratitude list with my rules: 1. 8 things a day 2. Written on a piece of paper 3. No repeats Gratitude and despair won't live together... It’s never too late to begin again, Although there is a “drill Sargent” that lives inside my head Whose commanding voice would like me to believe that Lent won’t really change anything. I fire him for Lent I won’t know until I begin. And the first thing I have to do Is Believe.
