The Hope of Lent - March 20th 

I once was lost, but now am found…

Amazing Grace


Lost keys, lost eyeglasses, lost papers. Finding these things brings a moment’s relief. Lost direction, lost passion, lost relationship. Finding these things is a lifelong task. We lose, we find, we lose again. Lent offers us a time to slow down and think about what we value most…those things we never want to lose.

As hard as I have tried, with all the goings on here at my house the past few months, I’ve found myself losing sight of what matters to me at times.  And beginning over is a great time to reset priorities.

Always, always, the important things in my life are family friends and my faith. Along with those things,  we need include how we spend our time, our happiness and behaviors.  A simple life with simple pleasures.

Gone now are the hectic days and more than ever before I find comfort in the quieter simpler life.  Chaos and drama have been removed and replaced by calm and peacefulness. 

Though you lose all hope, there is still hope, and it loves to surprise.

It is so refreshing to hear that calm and quiet will be replacing your chaos Ma! We are still in chaos, but I know one day calm and quiet will once again descend upon us and it will be a good thing! Enjoy!

Again, I find myself saying, "I needed to see this."
Step #1 of an (as yet) uncertain diagnosis, my worry cells are running amok.

I am glad you have found 'calm and peacefulness' in your new home. ENJOY.

Ah sweet lady, you said it all in this last paragraph, and I certainly appreciate it:

Love it!
