Today is the first day of Lent 2012. I have told myself that I will blog, even if only a few sentences, all 40 days of Lent.
My Lenten Calendar gives Joel 2: 12-18 as the reading for the day. The prophet reminds us to come back to God.
I believe that it is never too late to change, but sometimes it is hard not to regret what already happened. I also believe that if we are going to make any progress with change, we have to let go of that regret for the past. It was. We do what we can to make amends if called for. We let go and move on. We forgive ourselves and keep going.
There’s always another chance with God. Not just second or third chances – always another one. I will give myself another chance.
