FreerangeFriday: Lenten Lament

by Lilly Lewin
Lenten Lament 1

By Lilly Lewin

A long year…

Can we give ourselves permission to be where we are today?

To be sad

To be broken hearted

To be exhausted by a year of uncertainty & loss.

To be just done with it all!

Done with the conflict of us vs them

Done with the hatred

Done with verbal violence

Done with gun violence

Done with fights over simple things or things that should be simple….




Wash over us

Cleanse us

Blow out the cobwebs of self centeredness

Help us have new eyes to see

To truly see

One another

To truly see the beauty around us

And in us.


Feel it all …

Pay attention


Be kind

And have compassion

for yourself

And for others.

It’s been a very long year.

Lilly, I am grateful for this. I’m sharing it with my Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America leaders group, where I am the faith outreach leader. together we often say, “we are where we are,” rather than it is what it is. Your words resonate with this. Thank you.
