Lenten Thoughts

A time to reflect
On our lives
A time to deflect
Attention from mundane things
A time to repent
For all our misdeeds
A time to make peace
With our misguided friends
A time to abstain
From food and wine
A time to pray
For those in pain
A time to thank God
For all that we have
A time to pledge ourselves
To doing good whenever we can.

    beautiful lenten piece...heartfelt thoughts...
    Lenten season...time to abstain from foods for our bodies and give way to the foods for our souls..
    time to reflect on the Passion and Death of He sacrificed Himself for all of us...
    time for repentance and conversion...

EVEN such is Time, that takes in trust
Our youth, our joys, our all we have,
And pays us but with earth and dust;
