Leaning Into Lent: Day 5—Going Big

To those leaning on the sustaining infinite, today is big with blessings. (Mary Baker Eddy)
Observing a Holy Lent makes for forty days (forty-six if I count Sundays) especially big with blessings whether I’m aware of them, or not. The blessings are not necessarily (or even) on, or for, me.

Holy Lent prayer (informed, of course, by Holy Lent self examination, penitence, fasting, almsgiving, reading and meditating on the Word of God) stimulates the activity of the good and bountiful Holy Spirit in the lives of those for whom I pray. Leaning on the sustaining infinite places me, and all those for whom I pray, solidly in blessings’ way.
