March 1 in responding to a question regarding Lenten discipline, posed by Tess, I reflected that I find in this stage of my life, not so much collecting “things” to make me happy, rather I find myself invigorated by opportunities to spend time in rest and re-creation of my choice.
To fill in those reflective blanks for myself, I find that in the rest and recreation, I find two “things” that seem to have a tug on my heart these days -
1. Artists’ supplies and the artworks I am producing - coming from a place in me I feared might be forgotten after such a long respite.
2. Books speaking to my heart and soul about where I am in my spiritual journey in seeking closer fellowship with my Creator. In fact, my life with books seems to be growing exponentially! I find they're like new friends or perhaps scouts on a journey, assisting me in landmarks and direction.
It's not exactly a new question - but anything in particular feeding you during this Lenten season? Anybody actively fasting some of the time? I've never tried fasting......
