holy week meltdown

and it's not even holy week yet.

i love lent, but it exhausts me. there is nothing like it during the church year.

i fall in love with my faith every year sometime between stripping the altar on maundy thursday and shouting alleluia on easter sunday morning. this is the time of year that reminds me why i am a christian.

but i feel so overworked (with so much still to go) that it's hard to really enjoy the stuff that means the most to me.

it's time for a mental health day and then a trip to the pobble's tomorrow. i'll clean up the apartment, do the massive piles of laundry, and play with the silent prince... refocus

God's peace y'all

I've never heard anyone say that about Lent before. When you have time, could you speak a little deeper about it? I'm a Pentecostal-turned-Pagan--never did Lent.

What did you give up? (If I missed it, sorry.)

I'm glad it feels good to you anyway, even if you are busy and overwhelmed. I imagine this would be a very busy time for a pastor indeed. *hug*

We are having very similar weeks, it seems. I posted about a similar feeling of exhaustion yesterday.

Enjoy your re-focusing day!

I feel the same way about Lent....but without all of the prep stress you have to deal with. I become renewed in my faith every year at this time.

Have fun with Pobble...she's such a cutie. I'm glad you have each other.
