In this Lent Devotional for Women post we consider this quote, “A thing cannot give what it doesn’t have.” But then I change it to, “A person cannot love others well if they don’t love them themselves.” I’m a Lent Devotions rebel like that! Lent and love, all part of our daily devotions for Lent.
We are starting off our Lent Devotional for Women with a sort of challenge. Do not be fooled! It seems way to easy to be a Lent challenge. It might be simple, but simple isn’t always easy. As we journey through our devotions for Lent together, we’ll have more of these holy ordinary challenges.
Welcome to the Lent Devotional for Women, daily devotions for Lent series of posts. Today is Ash Wednesday, let me introduce the motto I’ve chosen for this series of devotions–Nothing Except for Today. It’s a quote from Therese the Little Flower and just because it sounds simple doesn’t mean it’s easy.
Just a short, simple, and sweet explanation into why Catholics abstain from meat on Friday, especially during Lent. There are also links to our Lent Devotional for Women and the private Facebook group as we journey through this Lent together, as a community of sisters.
I’m laying it all out today. I share the moment my anxiety got out of hand and how I found healing in part, through Bible quotes.
For someone who has needed lots of grace, I’ve needed more. This post explains what may look like faults and mistakes to others are actually saving me.
