Lent is a desert time, a time when we go with the Lord into the desert, to be with him, to learn what He would have us learn, to deepen our relationship with him. This is not done in our own strength, but entirely through His grace, as we open ourselves to that life-giving stream. We may find ourselves wrestling with uncomfortable truths about ourselves, but that is part of the process.

So let us enter with Him in trust and in joy; and may He Himself bless you greatly this day.
