Sabbath

This year I have chosen to add things to my routine for my Lenten Journey. I’m doing a photo a day and blog everyday. But growing up I distinctly remember being told that if we give up things for Lent that it doesn’t include Sundays. Because Sundays are like “mini Easters”. And so I decided, yesterday, that my sabbath time for my Lenten Journey this year would fall on Saturdays instead of Sundays. So I didn’t blog yesterday.

It works well for me that way. Saturday’s are generally my sabbath anyway, since I don’t work that day. So it’s a logical shift. But a new one for me.

I am thankful for tradition, routine, and newness.

Day one

I’m challenging myself to two things this Lent. 1) To complete the daily photo challenge I created for my youth and 2) To write a blog every day. So here it goes.

Today is many things. It’s the day we remember our dust. It’s the day we share our love. It’s the celebration of another year.

My brother-in-law’s birthday is today. He is a crazy, nerdy, loving, and driven person. I am thankful for him. I am thankful for the way he levels my sister out. And I am thankful for how our relationship will grow over the years. Love you, Josh!
