Abundant Grace for Living Holy
Lent is such an amazing time - it truly is a time of special and abundant grace. When I prayed about what I should focus on this Lent a few years ago - FORGIVENESS - kept emerging. At first, it made very little sense to me, as I feel I'm pretty solid with this subject. I mean, come on, I give retreats on forgiveness for heavens sake!

In addition I believe in God's mercy and love, and fully accept and cherish His gift of forgiveness.
