As my Lenten journey will begin tomorrow with Ash Wednesday, I am going to attempt something new. As we receive on Easter Sunday new dawn, new spring time, and new life.

So here it goes… each day during Lent I will post a picture of things I am thankful for. I am hoping it will help me to realize my life is not as bad as it seems, and that I have lots of things right here, right now that bring me happiness.

I invite you along on this journey. Will you join me?

“There are Christians whose lives seem like Lent without Easter. I realize of course that joy is not expressed the same way at all times in life, especially at moments of great difficulty. Joy adapts and changes, but it always endures, even as a flicker of light born of our personal certainty that, when everything is said and done, we are infinitely loved.” Pope Francis
