My house is also filled with flowers--daffodils, lilies of the valley, and hyacinths. Picked while watching the sunset over the river. Chilly,but lovely. Afternoons like this tease me into thinking that spring will soon be here. If I thought that was true I'd have picked up all the limbs and sticks in the yard. Instead I picked up some cushions and headed for a seat to continue enjoying the show.
This week Lent begins. I love Lent. Today while putting items in my booth I was talking with a friend about Lent and Easter. Her child said, "I'm gonna give up baths for Lent." We got a good laugh out of the that one. I don't usually "give up" anything for Lent. I like to "take up" more intense studying of scripture during Lent by using the book that our church studies. I miss the Lenten study because I work out of town on Wednesday night but since I live with the preacher if I have questions I have my own theologian available 24/7. I try not to wake him up...much. Find a place to walk through the 40 days of Lent. Get ready for the Resurrection. Maybe it can be your reclamation project for the next 40 days. Who knows what treasures await you?
