Today we observe Ash Wednesday and begin our journey through Lent.
I have decided to “fast” from writing on Oboedire during Lent. This includes the suspension of all three weekly postings.
I will resume writing on Saturday, April 19, with the “Ancient Wisdom” meditation for Easter Day.
I pray that the following words from Henri Nouwen will describe your experience of Lent…
” Lent is a time of returning to God. It is a time to confess how we keep looking for joy, peace, and satisfaction in the many people and things surrounding us without really finding what we desire. Only God can give us what we want. So we must be reconciled with God … The season of Lent, helps us in a special way to cry out for God’s mercy.”
