This sums it up

Thank to Sally at Fine Old Famly for pointing me to this lovely essay on the contemplative vocation of the mother. This sums up, better than I could, what I'm going for with my Lenten discipline.

When I told Eric I was going to make a schedule for Lent he said, "So, basically, you're going to be a responsible adult for Lent?" He was mostly kidding, I think. I still maintain that many responsible adults live without a strict schedule. They simply have enough virtue to do what needs to be done. But where virtue fails, rules are required. I definitely need a rule this Lent.

I am confused. Since this post came after Ash Wednesday, I assumed that blogging would continue. But, alas, it has not.

Where are you, Fair Q?
