This time last year we had no clue what the rest of the year would hold – It’s been a crazy year when we stop to think about it. Maybe this is what lent this year could be – a time to stop and think about where we are!

It’s a time of the year when we are able to count our blessings, a time to think about what we’re looking forward to – in the immediate as well as the long term – the small things as well as the big things but right now – the immediate in the midst of this lock down, in the midst of the circumstances we find ourselves in what are you looking forward to – maybe it’s a walk, maybe its planting some seed, maybe it’s a phonecall with a friend, maybe it’s starting a new course, maybe it’s watching & feeding the birds, maybe it’s the shopping trip (simply to get out of the house), maybe it’s the craft project … what ever it may be – the simple pleasures.

Maybe its something bigger – As we start out on this new week – lets take time to look forward – to note down the things we’re looking forward.

Paul – writing a letter to the Church in Philipi said this in Philippians 1:6

And I am sure of this, that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ.
