What is Lent? For most in my denomination it's either a thing Catholics do or a time to give up chocolate or something without any real reason. Yes, Lent is a time of sacrifice, of fasting but it is also so much more.

Not too much to report here. Finished the back of the pillow and Global Soccer Mom. Now on to the front with it's color changes and Simplicity Parenting. So much good stuff in the book that I wish I had it on audio so I could knit while listening. We desperately need some simplicity around here.

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails.
1 Corinthians 13:4-8
Pondering this long and hard. When life throws curve balls and stress mounts all one can do is fall back on love......the love Christ has for me, loving those around me even in the ugly moments. Trying desperately to not be swayed by circumstances, but rather cling to what really matters. Love.
Busyness has reared it's ugly head lately and not much knitting or reading has gotten done. Instead it's been a time of trying to get it all done and not fall into the feeling of failure or comparison with others who seem to do it all. So, the knitting has fallen off to the side but I am in desperate need of picking it up again. It has become a way to relax, to relieve the stress, to create a bit of beauty in life. Praying fervently that all will fall into place and I can carve out some time for creating.
