I love Lent. It's one of my favorite seasons. Well, no. Fall is my favorite season, so I guess I mean that Lent is my favorite holiday time of the year or something like that.
It's a peaceful time for me. One of quiet inner reflection, anticipation, participation in getting the ground ready for the first budding of spring.
It's like the time before Christmas (Advent) without all of the commercialism. The absence of all the hype itself makes it feel more real than the winter holidays. I like that.
