Lent a Fast

What do I do with Lent?

Does God really choose

to ignore me if I eat chocolate,

or biscuits, or drink wine?


Does God like me better

because I give up something?


I believe that fasting maybe 

not for God at all, but for me.

A time where I feel better

about myself and therefore

I will make you feel better too.


So, I shall eat chocolate,

drink wine and brandy too,

but will stop for a moment

and cwts with Jesus. We will 

feast as he hold me fast within.

margins are a great place sometimes because it is where change happens fastest but it is also a horrible place when we are stuck in them and grace is the moment when we can see that someone cares.
