Adding Instead of Subtraction

If you observe Lent then you are probably familiar with the idea of giving up something for Lent.

I was thinking about how much we have given up or lost during this pandemic year and wondering about turning that Lenten idea around and holding on to or adding something of meaning.

How about holding on to the relationships that are so important to us including those new ones formed through online meetings as well as those who have been with you for years. 

Many of us are at home and have time on our hands.  How about spending some of that time contemplating something of importance in your life.  Perhaps through meditation.  Or reading about it.  

How about adding a generous amount of gratitude to your day.  No matter what your circumstances are, there is always something to be thankful for.  If nothing else, the gift of a new day, the coming spring with all of it's colorful flowers.

Something to think about...
