And so Lent has begun.
I keep asking myself what that's going to mean for me this year, and I keep coming up with one thing: same old same old.
Same being stuck at home with no car.
Same taking care of my niece a couple of days a week.
Same being with my kids.
Same cramming all my errands into Saturdays and showing up at Vespers exhausted.
Same unfulfilled longing for more prayers with my community of believers.
Same desire for more of God.
Same spirit and soul.
Same food. I'm SO SICK of the food I eat. Same old same old. Day after day.
My struggle must be against self pity, among other things.
So, every thing's the same, but somehow everything just got harder, too. I'd best be casting myself upon God's mercy in that case, I suppose.
There's nothing much worth saying coming from my direction. I keep debating whether I need to quit the internet for Lent. I'm still thinking about it. Have not decided yet.
