Finding Harmony Every Day: Readings for each weekday of Lent

February 12, 2013

Fat Tuesday. Day to use up all the “fat” or oil in the house and do without until Easter (or “feast days,” Sundays, if you practice that kind of Lent). I do plan to make pancakes tonight—what an easy supper. Every other year we have a pancake supper at church but not this year. Boo.

But even if you’ve never practiced any kind of Lenten fasting or sacrifice, I invite you to make this a time to focus on faith, your relationship with God, and growing or shaping up spiritually. In case you think that sounds like boy, Melodie is really going all spiritual on us, I am not playing better than thou. I often go too many days without any real meditation time or Bible reading. I’m as haphazard (not proud of this) as many mainstream Christians. I go in fits and starts. So I’m always a little startled when I find God speaking to me in fresh and new ways when I take the time.

As part of my discipline this Lent I hope to post a daily scripture with related short meditation and photo (each weekday, Monday through Friday) with a break on the weekends.

So party hard tonight if you must, and enjoy those pancakes (see here for my sausage gravy recipe.) And join me here tomorrow as we begin a journey toward “Finding Harmony Every Day of Lent.”


I invite you to join me on this journey (if you sign up to follow this blog it will be easier).

 And as a thank you, I can send you a FREE booklet I wrote several years ago, 14 Days to a Better You, which is a look at the classic 7 Vices and 7 Virtues. It’s more fun than it sounds and small enough to slip into an envelope. No obligation—just my way of connecting with blog followers a little better. Leave a comment and I’ll be able to see your email and follow up.
