A Lenten Prayer for Monday



Hi, friends! If you are participating in Lent, how is it going? As you know, I have given up sweets and negative words. I shared this story on Facebook this weekend.






Loving God,
you call us back to you with all of our hearts.
I feel your call for me deep in my heart
and I know you want me back
as much as I want to return. 


Please, Lord,
give me the wisdom to know how to return.
Make my journey back to you this Lent
one of grace, forgiveness and gentle love.

That's so awesome. It was clearly karma. You will be repaid for all your kind acts because you do them from your heart not for anything in return.

So cool that you were able to make someone's day by giving something up yourself. Next time you go to starbucks I'm gonna follow you though so you can buy my coffee ;)

This is too sweet. I have given up sodas and negative words/thoughts. It's all easier said than done! It's amazing to see all of the good in this world though. It really makes my day! I hope you have a wonderful week!
