Thanks, and a plan

February 21, 2007 at 5:52 am (Christianity, Personal)

First of all, my most heart-felt thanks and expressions of gratitude to those who responded to my last post. Every response has made an impact. Thank you so very much.

Second, an update of sorts. Tomorrow is Wednesday, February 21. According to Western (especially Catholic) Christianity, it is Ash Wednesday, the first day of the approximately forty days of repentance, penitence, sacrifice, and self-denial before Easter’s Holy Week, which period is known as Lent. My plan is to post at least one post every fasting day of Lent (which means, roughly, every weekday and Saturday) and to post what thoughts come forth according to the prayers and readings of the day from the Liturgy of the Hours. (Of course, part of this will include an extensive explanation of this age-old practice of daily prayer by Christians.) Not every post will be spiritual, nor necessarily significant, but I hope through this almost daily discipline (the praying and posting) I will learn, realize, and gain much.

    I think blogging has the potential of being a spiritual discipline, so it’s especially useful during extended liturgical season…like lent. Thanks for sharing yours.

    Don’t give up man, if you give up on the dream it’ll eat you up inside and you’ll never forgive yourself, Langston Hughes said it best about the dream deferred.
