Was it there?

How have your days this week been filled?

Has it been a busy week, a slow week, a week that dragged on, a week that flew past? A routine week? A week with surprises or is it hard to recount the week because it was just like so many before?

Maybe one of the chief benefits of Lent is that it can help us be present in each day and consider what we are doing. It just might take us off automatic pilot and we see and hear and feel as we walk through another week.

Maybe as we consider the week past, we can take to heart our Lenten prayer’s encouragement to “feast on purposeful silence.” And in that silence notice what we otherwise missed in the week past.
