A few days ago, I stole an idea from someone I really like to have something different for Lent — at least, different from the way I think of Lent (when I ever think of Lent).
Instead of giving up something, I’ve made a commitment to do a good deed every day, much like the old groaner of a hymn above. And you know what? I’m happy. The weird thing is, I haven’t just been the giver. I’ve been the recipient of some really beautiful moments or kindnesses during this Lent.
Of course, the true beauty would be if I just did nice things and didn’t yammer on about them, but oh well.
If you’re having a Reverse Lent, how’s it going?
