What We Did During Lent 3/4/18

Our Lent practice when I was a kid was partly to “behave ourselves better!” 

Other “requirements, requests” were like: 

  • Do a good deed each day, a kindness (especially if we didn’t want to do it.) 
  • Pray for someone who needs it (to help us recognize that others had troubles too.) 
  • Look around and see if there were helpful things we could do without being told to - sweep the floor, do dishes, be pleasant, don’t crab, help each other. I am the fifth of 10 kids, so there were many opportunities. Think what we could do better for the family or for ourselves. 

The following is a prayer I got at an 8th grade retreat:

O God, make me smart and make me strong - smart enough to know your will and strong enough to do it. It started me but it makes sense.
