Hello there, friend,

Today is the first day of Lent, and somehow this season has slipped in so quietly that I feel only acutely aware of it. Usually, there's much prayer and consideration for the coming season -- what to give up, how to walk through the days leading to Easter. But this year, Lent sneaked up on me. I'm not sure how I feel about that.

I am still pursuing the idea of Sabbath, letting that soak through me and seep into my weeks. It's turning out to be no simple task. But it's given me much to think about in my pursuit of only what matters. In some ways, it's like walking a tightrope -- a little to the right, a little to the left, just trying to find balance, knowing there's no such thing as balance. Perhaps that's enough right now.
