Le(n)t it be

-Getting my North Carolina driver's license far easier than I expected. I was in and out in about 30 minutes.

-A gorgeous spring-like day where I could drive with the windows down. I love that spring smell in the air.

-The powerful act of putting ashes on a forehead, reminding us all of our limited time and how precious it is. It was a holy moment. I found myself really caught up in the ritual, even getting a little choked up during the benediction. The choir was rehearsing afterwards and so I stopped and just sat a moment, soaking it all in. I love Lent.

I love Lent, too. The crowd was skimpy at EPC last night, but I wouldn't miss getting my ashes.

I'm so glad you love your new church! I knew they would love you.
