Lent Day 4

Everyone I know is feeling
that it is lent
and things for some are very hard indeed.
One of my dear friends
continues to go through
very painful circumstances
and others are also in great stress
or sorrow.
I can tell I need to pray to
the Mother of God;
the Akathist to her Protection
gives me real consolation
and comfort.
May God shelter us
and the Most Holy Theotokos
Protect us.

Amen and amen. I have been surprised at the goings-on in "my" Lent so far. Thank God that He continues to work in and with us for our salvation. It is a wonderful time that way, even when it is painful or hard. Lord, have mercy!
