looking forward to Lent

I’ve been thinking quite a bit about Lent lately, and posted some assorted thoughts on my blog recently…

This idea, this tradition, this ritual of a season set aside for preparing oneself – for taking an honest look, being quiet, practicing confession and reverence – seems especially appealing to my heart right now.  Joining with the greater church around the world because this observance is needed by more than just me; it is part of the rhythm of our life of faith. Taking away something, not just to take it away, but to open up space and time for the getting ready.

You can read the whole post here. Modern Sacred Family also has some great practical ways to observe Lent with your family (each picture links to a different family activity) I’d love to know – what are your plans for Lent? What have you been thinking about it all?
