We are at our very best, and we are happiest, when we are fully engaged in work we enjoy on the journey toward the goal we've established for ourselves. It gives meaning to our time off and comfort to our sleep. It makes everything else in life so wonderful, so worthwhile.
February 13th- Tips for the journey
Before every meaningful moment there is a time of preparation, a time of longing. Lent is the forty days that we set aside to enter into the wilderness of our souls and find that place of quiet, openness and emptiness.
Tips for making the Lenten Journey more meaningful
Set aside 10 minutes a day for silent prayer or meditation. It will revitalize your body and your spirit.
Read a good book
You could choose a spiritual how to book or or one that you find inspiring
Go out of your way to do something nice for someone else every day.
Attend a Lenten lecture or spiritual program.
Whether it's cleaning the church or helping with the food drive, it will give you a chance to help others.
Especially for people you don't like and for people who don't like you.
Turn off the television and spend quality time talking with family members or friends.
Clean out closets
Donate gently used items
This season of Lent is an opportunity to travel on a journey within ourselves to strengthen the bonds relationships with both God and our fellow travelers.
You know more of a road by having traveled it than by all the conjectures and descriptions in the world.
