Well it has been a crazy, hectic, and frustrating day. It began whenI tried to blog something early this morning before work, but I had nothing. The ole brain just went blank. But I promised a certain deacon that I would blog something every day (weekdays at least) so here I am.
We are only two days into Lent, and I am already worried that I am going to flunk again this year. Come to think of it the only really good Lent I ever did was when I gave up sarcasm. That was beyond hard, but I did it. Once is enough. Hey I was born in New York sarcasm is in my DNA.
So I decided to work on my prayer life, and spend time in silence listening for the small still voice of the Lord. Perhaps if I just turn it over to Christ he will show me the way.
Thomas McDonald on his blog, God and the Machine, reminds us what Lent is really about:
The point of our time in the desert is to draw nearer to Christ. There are three ways to live Lent:
- Carrying the cross with Christ by sharing a small portion of His suffering.
- Emulating Him in acts of charity and kindness.
- Drawing near to Him in prayer and spending time at His feet, learning from him through Scripture and spiritual writing.
And so, this is the way I make my Lent. Read more for great suggestions.

That’s all for now folks. I am bone tired.
