Lent Inspirations for 2020

We are barely 2 weeks from Shrove Tuesday, and the beginning of Lent. The first Sunday of Lent will be March 1st. Since 2010, I have been doing some sort of "Pause in Lent" - a tradition started my my friend Floss in France. 

The idea is to take some time to reflect, either in a specifically Christian way or just in a more general 'spring-time, new-life' manner, on what this season means to us. You can share with us what you have been thinking about, what you have been doing at home or at church, what you have been reading or experiencing, and what your hopes or prayers are. The first Sunday of Lent is March 1st and Easter Sunday is April 12th. 
If you would like to join in, please leave a comment on this post. Please feel free to take the picture above and to make a link back to this blog, where I will make a list of all the participants and link to their blogs in my sidebar. I am looking forward to joining up with you all!
So please join with us to post when you can [no obligations, no guilt] on Sundays or Mondays between now and then. [You can sign up to be a reader, even if you are not posting] Maybe your thoughts will inspire others 
I've changed the picture for this Leap Year, to reflect my #word365, inspire because I was particularly taken with the image of a snowdrop threaded through the palm cross.


  1. I will definitely sign up to read any posts you write, Angela, but, I don't know if I will write any, myself. I hope that's alright?

    1. Readers as well as writers are ALWAYS welcome, Bless. Often the comments really add something to the posts.

  2. Replies
    1. No pressure at all - do not worry if you only write one post [or none] in the whole of Lent. You can just be a reader, like Bless

  3. Yes please include me I'll read and try to write something.

  4. I'll sign up because I do love these times of the year, and the different perspectives on them that bloggers have. I will try to participate with words, but will definitely be here with thoughts x

  5. I would like to have a go. My background doesn't really do Lent but would be good to give it some writing thought maybe

  6. I'd love to join. Are you able to change the date on your snowdrop picture?
    I find people's thoughts and comments so interesting.

  7. I will certainly read and I look forward to this.


Always glad to hear from you - thanks for stopping by!
