In this third day of Lent, I truly feel as if I have been wandering and struggling in the desert. My body hurts from yesterday’s snow shoveling. Every muscle ache, every limb heavy and wooden. Even my mind is numb.
But it is all good. I am at peace. My heart is not struggling. My mind is not thinking. It is not judging. I accept people as they are. I do not know what is in their hearts. Sometimes I do not know what is in my own. But I have this light inside that tells me if I live true to my values, true to my words, I cannot be harmed by anyone nor be touched by evil.
I will follow this little light of mine. And I will let it shine.
