Goodbye beautiful candy and so much more to gain more than I can imagine. “Dust thou art, and to dust thous shall return.” That is more than a commentary on the vanity of life but also to the fleetness of suffering. All that is hard and trying too shall vanish and only what is true will remain. I hope this Lent will lead me not only to a more authentic way of being but as a more authentic person all around. One that loves better, forgives completely and is ever mindful of my glorious nothingness.
