1st Sunday of Lent: "Plan this week to savor the wonderful creation of God that you are! Choose
positive self-talk and avoid putting yourself down." Perhaps we can gain inspiration for cultivating positive self-talk by "listening" more closely to God: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nCqdoEF_Uus
@jimrobinson This post has been sent to me many times and I wanted to share it in response. What do you think of it? http://www.barbmorris.com/a-letter-from-god-to-her-daughters-who-observe-lent/?fbclid=IwAR3eyfg2d1kgeB3hcyPy1sMjQDAdGlm6tklijuh2x9VhGtyk7rNIP_aZqoA
I love this, @Julian!
"I was there at the Big Bang, enlivening every particle, atom and molecule. You are made of me, and through me you are connected to everything and everyone. I am every-damn-where, girl. You swim in me and I in you.
This means, my dear, when you let yourself be healed, your healing heals the world. And when you cling to your brokenness, the world stays a little more broken than it needs to be..."
@jimrobinson I loved it, too. I find it more thought provoking than the idea that we are star dust. I think the contentedness of all creation needs to be intertwined with our mortality and our brokenness which this essay really encapsulates.
