Holy Week Confessions

Saturday Today’s the day of grief, of waiting. The day of losing faith and hope in what was believed to be true. Forgive me for my rage in times of grief, for impatience in times of waiting. Forgive me for the times I lose faith–entirely–and let go of hope. Forgive me for not believing your […]

My Lenten Confessional: Day 33-34

So God: I missed yesterday. If this were a command–not a practice–I’d confess it. But wagons are made to be fallen off of. And today, I’ve got about 5 seconds to do this. And I’m feeling super grateful right now–for so much. For this moment of quiet I’ve snuck in at the Festival of Faith […]

My Lenten Confessional: Day 29

Dear God: Today’s sin is Sloth. And fortunately–at least for ease of writing–I spent 8 hours this weekend indulging in my first binge-watch. True Detective was free on my cable app and who knew when I’d get another chance to see it. So I snuck it in here and there. When I should’ve been doing other things. […]
