Lent: Decisions, Decisions, Decisions…

On this Lenten Thursday, maybe it’s time to make a few decisions…

(an indecisive coyote we encountered awhile ago in the Grand Canyon)

“A decision joins us to the eternal. It brings what is eternal into time. A decision raises us with a shock from the slumber of monotony… A decision pronounces its blessings upon even the weakest beginning, as long as it is a real beginning.

The important thing is to make a beginning and get underway…

The archenemy of decision is cowardice. Cowardice and time always find a reason for not hurrying, for saying, “Not today, but tomorrow;” whereas God in Heaven and the eternal say: “Do it today. Now is the day of salvation.”

The eternal refrain of decision is: Today, today.” Søren Kierkegaard (from Provocations)

grace, peace & decisions

    Lent doesn’t feel like the patient waiting of Advent, does it? To me, it seems more “frantic,” as if the time for patience is over and the time for action is upon us. Probably has something to do with our wicked winter, ha!

      I know you get more snow & cold temps than us, but it’s been birizzzzy cold here this week – we’ve had to drip faucets with 20F temps @ nite. Weather didn’t get memo that it’s March? The poor daffodils that came out last week are freezing their petals off! 💨🌷💨🤪💨🌷💨
