It has been a substantial amount of time since I’ve blogged.
I wanted to get back into the habit of writing again. I do a lot of writing in my job, and I was given a little purple journal by my fiancé that I use to do a daily log in. But I wanted to do something a little different.
Starting tomorrow, I will be making the time to write a daily post on the readings of the Mass through the Lent. I know Lent is about sacrifice, about going without. Along with that though is something that I think many of us miss–namely, when we make space in our lives by giving something up, we open our lives for the opportunity of something good to come in.
Lent last year went by very quickly, in part because it was still the beginning of the pandemic and many of us didn’t know how it would fully affect us. In a sense, I’m hoping that writing and reflecting daily will help to slow the season down and help me to take stock. An inventory, if you will.
I look forward to making this journey together.
