Lent, Day 6

We hope you'll visit the blog each day for a little thought, poem, prayer or image to be with you during this season of Lent. 

So often we consider Lent to be somber or sad.  I liked this author's take on it:  

"Lent is a call to weep for what we could have been and are not. Lent is the grace to grieve for what we should have done and did not. Lent is the opportunity to change what we ought to change but have not. Lent is not about penance. Lent is about becoming, doing and changing whatever it is that is blocking the fullness of life in us right now. Lent is a summons to live anew."

We trust in a God who can make all things new, who transforms dust into human form, who says death does not have the last word.  May God be with you this Lenten day.
