Lenten Picture February 22

February 23, 2016 Leave a comment

What’s the good word? Today’s Lenten word is: Save. For this word I have chosen the following picture-
 

This picture helps me to ponder more about what I can do to save the planet. We certainly haven’t treated the earth as good stewards, which was God’s idea from the beginning. I have loved teaching my daughter ways that she can help as well. And when I slip, you can bet she holds me to it! And that’s the good word for today.

Lenten Picture February 21

What’s the good word? Had a busy couple of days and dozed off on posting Lenten pictures. So let’s try for a better week. Today’s word is: Wings. What else can I post but a picture of an eagle.

on-eagles-wings1

I always loved the song Eagle’s wings based on Isaiah 40. It reminds us that while we run and run and run, the Lord does not grow weary and in our tiredness God will raise us up on Eagle’s wings and give us the rest. And that’s the good word for today!

What’s the good word? Today’s Lenten word is: Confess

There were so many good pictures for today’s word, so I decided to break protocol and post two pics. Whenever we think of confession, we probably think of a picture like this:

confess

I must say that it gives me a negative feeling about confession. And there’s the deal, confession is GOOD! It’s not legalistic, and it’s not about doing certain things in order to earn that forgiveness. Forgiveness is a gift that comes to us freely when we ask for it. For me confession is more like this:

CONFESSION_1

“Nothing you confess will make me love you any less, ” Jesus.

And that’s the good word for today!

Lenten Pic February 12

What’s the good word? Today’s word for Lent is: Return. 

  
There’s always this picture at the top of my Facebook timeline that reminds me of something that happened a year ago, or two years ago, or more. Depends on Facebook I guess. It always makes me return to a time and place in the past. Most of the time I get a smile or chuckle out of the picture. Today is no different. Today is my son, Logan’s 1st Birthday. At the top of my timeline there was a picture of him the day he was born, making me return to that wonderful day! Lent is supposed to do that for us. In the liturgy for Lent we sing: “Return to the Lord your God…” Returning to God to remind us of how gracious and merciful our God is. So today, take some time to stop and reflect. Return to God and remember! And that’s the good word for today.

Lenten Pic of the Day

What’s the good word? It’s been a LONG time since I’ve been on here to blog. I really need to get back into it, for myself at least. I’m choosing Lent as the time to re-up my blogging. It gets me into a discipline at least. So, for Lent I’m taking on a challenge that I found online. There’s a word for the day and you have to post a picture that represents that word. Seems fun enough. 

Today’s word: Oppression

  
I love this picture. It reminds us all that in the face of oppression, whether to us or to someone else, we must stand up and say some thing. But I believe we must do more than just say some thing, I believe we must DO something. It goes without saying, faith without works is dead. Words without actions seem empty, they seem, well, to be just words. And that is the good word for today.
