3rd 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.
