Happy Ash Wednesday?

Would you greet people like this if your Lenten practice centered you - every day for the next 6 weeks - on God's love? 

Here's how I'm entering LentTired. Whipped. Worn out. The last two months have steam-rolled me flat.  So, I'm entering Lent with a healthy dose of realism.  I will not be able to give up chocolate or wine or run and pray every day and I really don't think God cares about all my posturing anywayWhat I do beleive He cares about is my heart.  

I've decided I'll begin there: at the Center of who I am.  And if I feel like abstaining from something for a day or a week I might.  But I might not.  My 'sacrifice' this year will be simple.  I'm giving up Do-ing and trading it in for Be-ing. 

I simply want to savor the Love that's alive in my ordinary-trying-hard-to figure-it-out life. I want a space to be reminded everyday that He is loving me right. where. I am.  

To quote my most wise sister - Being with someone, soaking up their love is doing something. 

Happy Ash Wednesday, indeed!

Africa is calling. Again.

Just like last year, Liberty is headed half way around the world this Spring to help children in Rwanda.

Maybe you've been on such a trip or maybe (like me) you cannot imagine going on such a trip. Either way, you can support Liberty from the comfort of home.

Take a look at this.
