One of the things I rediscovered on a daily basis on my Sabbatical was joy. Waking up with a smile joy. Fruit of the Spirit joy.
Since joy is linked with the work of the Holy Spirit, I've decided to take on joy this Lent. I was retaught by that same Spirit what gives me joy during my Sabbatical-- knitting, baking for others (well, as long as I can lick the bowl), being with my grandboys, dancing, having endless time to sit in my prayer chair meandering through spiritual practices.... That's a start.
There's a Lenten trend here, this second day of Lent. Bread in communion with the people I love--three Eucharists at St Mary's yesterday, a home communion, breakfast bakery communion with my friend, and now more bread communion with my mom.
