Seeking to find meaning in old traditions, to observe Lent in a new way,

I ask the Creator within: how to become one with thee?

The answer comes – crystal clear – Embrace Joy.

Release old traditions, release the Cross; it was a means to demonstrate life everlasting.

Obeying, I turn within, filled with gratitude, 

I embrace Joy and sense the Power of the Living Christ.

I am God-directed, God- guided, God-led. Thank you, beloved God.
