Our journey into Lent is one of hesitant steps and uncertain motives. None of us recognize the depth of our own brokenness and our need for repentance. Much of our inner being often seems obscured by fog or, as in this photo, smoke and pollution. Each day, each year, each step should help us peel away the layers until the full image of God that resides within us can be revealed. I love the idea of Clean Monday and its encouragement to sweep out the corners of our lives and get rid of the dirt and dust that has accumulated .
