Holding the Egg
Day 62 of 75 countdown. 62 days from today, Dec 30, 2021, before lent begins on March 2, 2022. Why am I doing this? This challenge? Last year, I wrote Faithful Forty – 46 days, technically 40 days of writing. About the things we sacrifice, or should I say I sacrifice. Though I like to include all of you who find yourselves reading my blog (Thank you!).
This time, it’s Pre-Lent. I can’t give a solid answer on the why of why I’m writing these entries. Just that I guess it’s a preparation for all things changing and molding into something… From Dec. 17th – March 2nd. I challenge myself to write diligently and faithfully. For me, for you, for all who would like to write something meaningful somehow, someway.
I find myself being careful. As if I’m handling a very delicate object. Holding it in my hand like an egg perhaps. And maybe that’s the whole point: hold everything gently as I head out of a challenging year, into a more comforting, soft, blanket. Being held and holding others in this soft, warm, blanket. How did I get to an egg in my hand, to a blanket? Don’t you just love how things happen in blogs? How writing can get you from point A to F in a few seconds flat!
I challenge you. In your own way, to prepare for something awesome to birth in the new year, but also to ask yourself what you are willing to sacrifice during lent. If you celebrate it. Whatever it is, do it with passion.
Many blessings, Sandi
