Lent 3.16.11

Be Nourished

I’m a week late but have finally settled on a Lenten practice — I’m going to post a drawing each day from now till Easter. It’s been a rough winter and my soul was so in need of the extra hour of sunlight we gained this week with the time change. Today’s drawing is a meditation on the sense of renewal that I feel as the days grow longer and ever so slightly warmer. It also reminds me of the way these quiet days of Lent make space for me to grieve what has been lost, to listen for signs of new life and to prepare room in my heart and my imagination for God to do a new thing.
