Small Surrenders

Lent is our chance for a fresh start, a new page. We consciously let down our defenses against the grace of God. We admit to ourselves our need for improvement. We notice how hopeless we are. We tell God we're doing our best but we wish we could do better. We put ourselves in God''s hands.

From Small Surrenders: A Lenten Journey, by Emilie Griffin

I like that. Simply and beautifully put. Your title caught my attention because I decided my word for Lent this year is SURRENDER. It's a good word.
