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.

Outside my window...


I am thinking...
about my Aunt Dorothy who turned 95 last week, and found the time to write me a beautiful thank you note for the flowers I sent. She has lovely handwriting!

I am thankful...
for all the kindness that she has shown me during my lifetime and I hope that I can pay that forward with as much grace and gentle good humor she has shown.

In the kitchen...
My special seasoning for pork chops- the secret is the cinnamon.

I am wearing...
A gray skort and black T-shirt.

I am going...
  • to walk or work out every day but Thursday and include some pelvic floor strengthening exercises. I started these last week, and along with some cranberry pills I bought at Walgreens, I am noticing an improvement in my symptoms. 
  • move my spring cleaning to the basement.

A quote to share...
Gentle-Jesus-meek-and mild has probably made more apostates than any other single phrase of the language.  And what a phrase! About as adequate as calling a man-eating tiger, "poor pussy"

Dorothy Sayer from The Letters of Dorothy Sayer
