Lent, Take Two

It is hard to believe that we are half way through the Lenten season.  Is it time to revisit our promises or is it time to come up with some new ones to finish the season out.   Either way there is still time to do what we have the power to do.  When I was praying this morning, I came across this little reflection from the prayer guide The Word Among Us.   It seems so appropriate to this day.

“The more space you give God to work, the more refreshed, invigorated, and restored you will feel. So, as you enter into the second half of Lent, let the Lord nourish you. Sit quietly, pondering his word. In prayer, recall all he has done for you already, and praise him for all he still wants to do. Cherish the gift of the Eucharist. Or maybe share God’s blessings with someone in your home. Whatever you do, make it a point to balance out the things you do for God with how much you let him restore you.”
