Lent begins

I cherish then Lenten season of the Church. It is a wonderful time for reflection and for contemplating what changes I must make in myself to more closely follow Christ. This Lent poses far more suffering for me, as work has me living apart from my family. I only get to see them perhaps once or twice a month. It has been very difficult being apart and I look forward to being reunited with them. So this Lent I have more time to myself. I hope to make the best of it, but it's difficult to focus. My thought often turn to home. I don't recommend to anyone giving up "family" for Lent. More to come.
