Lent is a time to take the time

to let the power of our faith story take hold of us,

a time to let the events

get up and walk around in us,

a time to intensify

our living unto Christ,

a time to hover over

the thoughts of our hearts,

a time to place our feet in the streets of Jerusalem

or to walk along the sea and listen to his word,

a time to touch his robe

and feel the healing surge through us,

a time to ponder and a time to wonder…

Lent is a time to allow a fresh new taste of God!IMG_20150223_164546_229

This poem by Ann Weems, struck something inside me. This Lent, I will focus on “letting the power of (my) faith story take hold of (me).”  I plan to “ponder and to wonder” if God is calling me to do some writing concerning my own TBI and theology. As I swam my laps today, I decided to write as a spiritual practice this Lent. Nothing may come of it but I do expect to at least feel a healing surge within.
