Having not grown up observing Lent, for most years the time has passed me right by. Last year I think I started thinking about it half way into the season and was bummed to not have incorporated it into my journey at the start.
This year I want things to be different. I'm not sure exactly what God is calling me to, but I am open and listening. I ran across some information that was helpful on Coffee Klatch.
Also, if you're looking for some kind of guide through Lent, you may want to check out "A Journey Into Wholeness," by Christine Sine.
