This year for Lent, I have had to take into account that my schedule has changed a lot since last year. (Those of you who notice when I update the blog will have seen this by now. I have less free time now in the average day than I did a year ago, less than I've had for the last however many years running.) So I struggled a little to find a Lenten observance this year that was practical within that schedule.
This year is a small observance: I am singing Lenten hymns in the shower. (The acoustics make my voice sound better anyhow.)
Why in the world would I mention such a small observance? Just in case anybody else has a year with a rough schedule. Lenten hymns or spiritual songs could fit into a morning shower, or rush time karaoke, or could be on an iPod. It may be a small step, but it is a step. There's always something.
Take care & God bless.
