I was not sure about doing a series for Lent this year, and for a while now I have both looked forward to and dreaded this day. I have enjoyed the daily practice of watching for the divine in past years, but my attention feels (is) so widely scattered these days. Every time I decide to do this I immediately back away again, not trusting mysel--
I don't even want to finish that sentence. I am so sick of that loop in my head.
And then this poem by Jan Richardson found me today, twice:
This is the day
we freely say
we are scorched.
And her words hit home, and I absolutely want to ask, every day, what the Holy One can do with dust.
And if I watch, what will I find?
