There's no place like home.

There's no place like home.
Home is where my husband and I reside; wherever that may be.

A Pre-Lenten Reflection

     Being recollected, this phrase from Father's sermon keeps twining its way through my thoughts. It is rapidly becoming the purpose and focus of my upcoming Lent.
     Everyone of us, in his own way, gets enmeshed in life, the daily obligations and goals that we set, to the point that to remain recollected to God is often a huge struggle.  Inside we each feel the need and pull to be in his presence and yet we respond, more often, to the pull of other obligations as something that is greater.
     I have also noted that each time I publically encourage my own struggle through blog posts and FB statuses to that effect, others respond with thanks and an acknowledgment of their own struggle.  So, along with the notion of being recollected myself comes the idea of encouraging others.  If we all strive to share quotes, prayers, or thoughts that inspire personally these inspirations will be out there to inspire all who read them.  Perhaps instead of giving up FB we can flood it with recollections of God and his place in our lives and make it less a place of triviality and more a place of depth.

I agree Ann. I know on my latest blog my heart just poured out and I had no idea it would do so until I sat to my keyboard.

I'm not sure if people understand many times, but God does.

May God be glorified.
