How's your lent season going?
Mine? Well, lets just say that when one decides to give up fear and anxiety,
they come ROARING back at me like a lion.
Anxieties run rampant through my mind.
Fun things, like death and destruction and general mayhem run around and my mind freezes up just a tad.
"Don't let go of US" scream the mighty twosome.
They are powerfully loud.
Shall I scream back?
Well, screaming "Shut UP all ready!" kinda helps.
Then I remind myself to get quiet.
It's an amazing gift we have been given. Breathing loosens up fear and gets your gut to unclench.
Praying is awesome over all the little things. ALL of them. Send them up.
The most amazing thing happens....the little things get released.
I'm reading Help Thanks Wow, by Anne Lamott. I highly recommend it.
Reading these devotions for lent is awesome-(thanks, Paula!).
Getting quiet to me is the most backward thing I could possibly do when Fear is roaring at me.
Should I not be flailing around, trying to go into some kind of action instead?
Painting helps. I'm quiet when I paint. Time is released, ideas are put aside and I concentrate.
Hands open kind of a day.
