Another Lent is here. And I’ll say so far this seems to be the least weary and worn out Lent I’ve had in a while. I guess there are times in life when it feels like things are “clicking” better than other times. Maybe like a fog has lifted. For how long? I have no idea. But I’ll enjoy it while it’s here. I’ve finally found the energy to nail down a schedule for the daily things and added the extras I’ve been wanting to make more regular habits of. I think I’ll write on that later.
The third Sunday of Lent is almost here. This year during Lent I’ve made certain behaviors and disciplines in our home a priority.
I chose to focus on 2 Commandments with the babies, the 4th and 5th. They are all working to speak with reverence and kindness to their father and mother more often. On their attitudes as well and asking for forgiveness when they break these commandments. We will move on to kindness to one another next. I realize these are life long disciplines and continual failings but I’m still determined not only to demand these things from my children but to teach them what God says these commandments mean and how they are to do them.
