Happy Lent

Happy Lent?  Really?  Given our call for reverence, reflection, and reconciliation during this period, is there much to be happy about?  

Actually, there is a ton to be happy about.  Lent provides us a true break to take stock of our lives - how we're living, what we deem important, how we help others - and affords us the opportunity to course correct.  Forty days to reflect on our lives, and how they do or do not align with how the Lord asks us to live.

Temperance?  A little suffering?  Sure, but nothing at all compared to the passion of the Savior.  And then, at the end, it's all capped off with the celebration of the Resurrection and all that the event means.

Happy Lent, indeed.
