Monday, musings…


What we think, we become.
All we are arises with our thoughts.
With our thoughts, we make the world.
The Buddha

Last year I did some decluttering of my home.  It was past time to do it and took some thought and work to accomplish it.  It feels good to have it done and now I have some other decluttering to do.

Wednesday is Ash Wednesday, the first day of Lent. For the past 20 years or so I have observed the days before Easter with some sort of discipline. I do something new or don’t do something I usually do. This year I am going to continue with the decluttering I started last January.

This decluttering will be of my mind and heart. I will be thinking and praying about who I was yesterday, who I am today, and who I will be tomorrow. To do this, I will concentrate less on the physical and more on the spiritual aspect of this life of mine. I hope to learn what to let go of, what to keep, and what new things to add to my life.

So, to do this I will be limiting my time on the computer, I will not be writing or reading blogs, and I will limit the time I spend on my tablet and Netflix.  I know this will not be easily done because these are things I enjoy and do most days. I will miss writing my blog and reading yours but will be journaling about what I learn as the Spirit leads.

This is the last of my blogging until Monday after Easter.
Blessings, my friends.

  1. I always loved Lent when I was a practicing Catholic. You have me thinking maybe I’ll observe in a Franciscan way, paring down, giving some bad habits up, like taking things much too personally. Old wounds easily stoked and stroked. I can be kinder across the board, not just on a pick and choose basis. Like that fruit man, I had no right getting mad at him, now that’s something I could give up for Lent, expecting to always get my way, then stamp my feet, when I don’t. You’ve unleashed much thought in me Madam.

    1. I was raised Catholic but no longer identify with any church. I am simply a Christian believer. I observe the discipline of Lent because I need it. Don’t be too hard on yourself just do the best you can and when possible go one step farther. See you in April!
