Lenten Question

"The real question of the Lenten Season is how will I clear out the junk and garbage in my life so that I can be restored to God in some fresh way." 

Ruth Haley Barton


  1. I don't do Lent but I find it a nice concept. For myself, instead of taking away anything I'm seeking to add spiritually. I'm focusing on memorizing scripture.

  2. CINDY, I don't do Lent either in the sense that some "do". I was not raised in a church that even used the word. As an adult, I've done some study to appreciate the emphasis and have "kidnapped" the focus as inspiration similar to New Year's resolutions to remind me of the grace and love of God invested in me and to recommit myself to obedience to His Word and holy living.

  3. "Restored to GOD in some fresh way."
    Amen! May HE lead each of us in ways that please HIM for HIS Glory.
    Praying that you have a nice weekend and sense HIS presence in your life.
