The reminder I really need this year is that Lent can start at any point. I’m succeeding and failing in equal parts, making this a typical year in many ways. What I’m struggling with is different than last year, but the thing I’m succeeding with is also different. One thing, in particular, is different.
This year, I’m spending Lent with Mary.
You can read about some of my ideas for spending the rest of your Lent with Mary at Faith & Family Live, and you can share your ideas too. I’d love to hear them.
(Note on the picture: NO, my redbud tree isn’t flowering. Last check, it’s not even budded out yet. But a girl can dream…)
Same place as you (except for spending it with Mary, sadly). Failing mostly with a few successes. I took great comfort from your reminder that Lent can start at any time. Thank you!
