“To every son and daughter
Wayward and long gone
The love of a Father will leave the light on”
(From Nichole Nordeman’s “Lay it Down.”)
You know, it just occurred to me that there are other Seasons besides Christmas! We are now in the Season of Lent preparing our hearts for the Risen Christ at Easter.
Lent is an incredibly important Season — an opportunity for a new beginning and a new relationship with the God Who loves us. It’s an opportunity to stop and think, to turn around and find a new path. It is a time to lay the weight of the world –all of our sufferings, sin and burdens — down at the feet of Jesus and start anew.
Here are a few lovely places to begin your Lenten Season — reflections, online rosaries and other things that I hope will help you on your journey.
