|Welcoming a Spirit-filled Lent|
Inspired by Tiffany (again!) at familyatthefootofthecross.blogspot.com to change the wreath on the front door for Lent, I set out to make our liturgical wreath.
I love the purple fabric she draped on the cross but I don't have a cross I feel good about putting on the door to endure the elements. I could make one (maybe!) but I like that the wreath I do have is a grapevine one, it's a little wiry and it just reminds me of a crown of thorns whenever I look at it. It's fairly tattered to say the least.
Anyhow, I ended up just draping the fabric through the wreath as if the cross were there and when I was done I showed it to Anna.
Because I liked the cross so much with the fabric, when I was done I was having a hard time with my plain, tattered wreath.
I said, "I think it's missing something. It's not very pretty."
Anna replied, "It's not supposed to be pretty, it's LENT!"
