Tomorrow is Ash Wednesday which marks the beginning of the Lenten season. This is a time to let go of something in order to focus our hearts and minds on Jesus as we approach Easter.
I have been wrestling with how I might participate in Lent this year. The thing that keeps coming to mind is pursuing simplicity. So I will be looking for things that bring unnecessary complications into my day. With so many things going on with family, church and school I need to be extra intentional about creating space and simplicity.
It will be an evolving project. Periods of fasting, silence, solitude, times when I need to say no so that I can hear the Spirit and say the yes to what truly matters.
