Lent is a season of reflection and self-examination. It begins on Ash Wednesday (February 26) and will continue through Easter (April 12). People often observe Lent by giving up something they like very much. Then, whenever they think about what they have given up, they use that time in prayer or reflecting on who they are in relationship with God.
During this season of Lent, we are suggesting something a little different. Near the end of each day, spent a few moments thinking about your day. Answer the question, “What is the best thing that happened to me today?”
Write out your answer. If you are on Facebook, Twitter, or some other social media, share your answer with your friends and those who are following you. Consider using the hashtag #bestthingtoday.
Throughout this season of Lent, look back over your answers from time to time and thank God for the best things in your life.
