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.

    Lenten season...time to abstain from foods for our bodies and give way to the foods for our souls..

Under thy long locks thou may'st have the scall
But after my making thou write more true!
