Yesterday began the Lenten season for many people around the world. I do follow in this traditional partaking.
Like Advent it is a time of waiting and preparing. This time we are preparing for yet another promise, the promise of the afterlife...the resurrection!
This waiting is sometimes difficult but wasn't advent too? Some of us prepare with self-sacrifice, others with prayer, some of us nothing at all, but we still wait.
The waiting and waiting and waiting...it is nerve wracking almost. Right?
However, I am grateful for it! By waiting, I am taught patience in other things that flow in and out of my life. I am taught that by waiting often the good will be at the end even if I have to wade through the bad to get there.
Wow, what a revelation!
