Sunday Thoughts

Our Lenten sacrifices aren’t supposed to be a test of our strength—they’re supposed to be a reminder that we can only conquer sin through Christ, who conquered temptation in the desert.

I took Arwen to her very first circus, at the kind invitation of our Goddaughter Isabel's parents.  We both had an excellent time!

Belovedest and I played board games with my sister Rachel. Lots of fun!

A really close game...

Auntie M. had a lovely birthday tea.  It's becoming a tradition of elegance that I very much look forward to.

Six Months at My New Job + Ash Wednesday

I wrote here about waiting until I'd been at my job six months to pick my goals for my new life.

I think I'm just going to keep praying for God to show me His will.  And I'm going to try to take things one day at a time, and not live in a perpetual state of impatience yearning for the next stage of my life.

To all of my Christian readers: Best wishes for a holy and fruitful Lent!
