I see on t.v. that Lent is here! What exactly is it? I've been asking. Is it a day to pick the lent off all your sweaters to stretch your wardrobe? It is a day to clean out your dryer vents because they are dirty, stuffed with lent? What is Lent and why should we care?
Lent is about ashes. This I know and why is that? I saw on television the other night a news story about people whose homes became fire hazards because they didn't realize their dyers and the electrical outlets were covered, filled with lent. They showed how quickly lent-filled dryers went up in flames due to all that lent, verses how slowly clean dryers burned. Talk about ashes!! Wow! I hope nobody burns! I just sayin' I know! I know! I'm sounding a little facetious. Sorry....just need to know what it means. Forgive me. Forgive me. Forgive me, please!
Lent is about "giving up something." This I know and why is that? If I give it up, will I get it back? Is it like "donating," or something like that? I am trying with exaggeration and on purpose to get your attention in hopes you might say something, educate me, please about what this Lent is and what it really means! I am young, and new to all this, but I see it on t.v. and it peaked my interest. Exactly, then, what does Lent mean to you and what should Lent mean to me? I am young and why should we care? Hello? Hello? Is anybody there?
Remember, it is not Mohammad, Buddha, Confucius, nor New Age that saves. Jesus Saves!
