Revisiting Lessons Learned from Lent

A little encouragement as we enter the 2017 Lenten Season:

Lenten Lessons from 2015

#1 – If you want to Follow Christ – to truly be His disciple.  IF you desire to be used as an instrument of spreading the Good News — be prepared to pick up your Cross (daily, sometimes hourly -ok, sometimes ‘secondly’).  There is NO doubt He’s there with you but that thing (aka cross/burden/issue) can still get PRETTY heavy at times!   Thank goodness for His promises shared with us in scripture…

​”Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.  Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”   Matthew 11:28-30

#4 I loved all the extra time not watching TV gave me, I pray I can continue this discipline now that Lent is over!! **Because EVEN with that bonus time I am still insanely behind on my ministry projects … see #5 for more on that

Some Lenten Small Success

Happy #SmallSuccess Holy ThursdaySuccess #1  

Returned home – safe and sound – and healthy from my business trip to Washington, DC.  While there for the Napa Institute‘s Human Ecology conference on the campus Catholic University of America – I learned:

  • All about Uber (as the Metro was down while I was there); 
  • $1500 a night hotel rooms are WAY better than $400 a night hotel rooms (our reservations were given away by the Days Inn so they had to put us up at a Marriott for one night – it was nice albeit very inconvenient at midnight)!;
  • Planes travel ‘wicked fast’ when there are only 11 people on board with no stowed luggage! (except the one bag my traveling companion, Jennifer Longworth had with our Breadbox Media swag in it!)
