Try to get to know the Lord a little better this Lenten time. Spend some time reflecting upon who God is and how much He does for you. Try to reach out and invite Him into every little thing that you do. Be patient, be kind and show mercy to those who need your kind presence and when you do so paradoxically you are truly learning to know who God is. You are being held in the most secure hand of all..... Margaret Theresa Naughton
