1 Week Down, 5 Weeks to Go

So, how was your first week of Lent? Was it lenty? Did you practice lenting go?

Lent is Funny!

My Lent took me from an Ash Wednesday worship at the college where I work to an extravagant event in southern California. It's a strange transition from penitence to party.

Of course, I also had the sickness. Still do, in fact. It's lingering with me. Most of the symptoms have gone away, but I can tell it's still there. It's just waiting for the right moment to jump out of its little hiding place and lay me flat on my back.

It's already one week after Ash Wednesday. Maybe it's the travel, but I feel like I've missed something. Where does the time go? Easter will be here before you know it.

A while ago, I posted words to a song that I wrote, so I'll end with this one (just the refrain):

It's Lent, and I am very happy.
Today we learn about suffering and loss.
It's Lent and I am very happy.
We learn about death and Jesus on the cross.
