In trying to decide what to “do” for Lent this year, I was listening to the priest at Mass, and he was talking about the 3 major parts of Lent… Prayer, fasting, and alms giving… Which got me to thinking, what do I want to focus on the most right now? I realized that I kept going back to prayer… So, for the next (almost) 40 days (I do realize I’m starting a couple days late)… I’m going to post either prayers or scripture readings that speak to me in some way. I will still be posting craft projects (especially from my fabulous upcoming 5 day quilting retreat!!!! Which I’m so excited about, but starting to get a little bit nervous about going away for 5 days not knowing anyone!!) but I’ll also be posting .
4-To Pray and Ponder
Mary, pray that I might treasure life
Mary, Pray that I might ponder
How to defend life
How to see and hear beauty
How to affirm and share goodness
How to grasp and utilize opportunity
How to seek and proclaim truth.
Mary, pray that I treasure what I have
And ponder what I might become.
