Ash Wednesday today: start of my Lenten discipline


Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of Lent.

I'm doing Ash Wednesday services at Noon and 7pm at the Church, "Ashes to go" on the sidewalk in front of the Littleton post office at 1pm, and “Ashes to go” at the entrance of the White Mountain School cafeteria at 10:30am (an Episcopal School in Bethlehem, NH).

I'm also naming my "Lenten discipline":   regular reflections here on the blog.

I'm fallen away from it for awhile:  filling up my day with other things.   I've wanted to get back to this type of "writing", but haven't.  

Yesterday, I bumped into George who serves on the board of the Littleton Community Center.  We had a nice brief conversation, during which he expressed that he missed my writings on the blog.  He was the second person to graciously say so in the past few weeks.

It was the final bit of motivation I needed (thanks George!)

Will "regular" mean everyday?  Perhaps:  if I miss one I'm not giving up.  

Blessings to all those beginning their Lenten journeys.

Kurt

It will be nice to read your thoughts more often. Keep me in your prayers. I've made the same committment.
