Monday after the Sunday of the Cross

My spiritual father said to me once
that it is a blessing just to be
on the Ladder.
Soon it will be the
Sunday of St. John Climacus. 
It seems that Lent often is a time
when my ideals of
how I would like to do Lent
don't fully happen.
So instead I do what I can.
Tonight I am glad that I got my dishes done.
Small prayers.
Candles lit.
Hope in God's mercy...

Indeed, sometimes even knowing where the ladder is is difficult! Prayers as we all ascend, and fall, and ascend, and fall....
