Week of Lent how is that possible? How has Lent
been going for you? Have you
been able to fast? To give? To pray? I invite you
to take time for a trip to "the desert".
No, I don't mean hop on a plane and head out west.
Rather, I invite to think about the desert, a
quiet place with less of us and more of God. It is
a place that offers solitude as well as
temptation. No one to see what you do in the
desert, right? Wrong! God sees all. But it's not
the temptation I want to draw your attention but
more so, the quiet solitude and more of God. Just
10 minutes a day to start, no phone, no
television, no internet, no nothing. Just sit and
listen with an open heart and an open mind to what
the Lord has to say to you.
