My Lent 2019 Book List Plans

Is this the year you really want to dive into Lent? Do you want to come out of this Lenten Season and truly feel that you've had a small share of living in the desert with Christ for 40 days? I know that I do. Maybe it's an upcoming birthday that's making me have more of a now-or-never type of attitude towards Lent. Or maybe I just acutely feel the necessity of truly modeling this for my children, and living it with my husband. Whatever it is, these are the books and resources I'm going to use this Lent to really LIVE the season from Ash Wednesday all the way through to Easter Vigil. Look them over. If something looks helpful to you, use it. If it inspires you, go with it. I hope all of these bless and encourage you.

A mother's poem

What happened to my mother's heart so many years ago
That miscarried the body of my child that died and wouldn't grow

A heart once filled with love and joy then turned to dreadful fear
The hopes and dreams that left me then, I ponder every year

My baby boy lay on his side, sweet palm under his face
His soft angelic look of peace brought me and Daddy grace

A grace that never left me when I placed him in his tomb
A grace that gave me solace and healed my empty womb

A decade's time has come and gone, I still can see my baby
but with a strength from God above I still have hope that maybe

My mother's heart was touched by heaven and healed of all its sorrow
I love you little child of mine, and will see you some tomorrow
