this dance

most of us have done this dance at some point in our lives. i know i have. it is the one between us and Our God. the world lures us this way and that, He pulls us back, always trying to save us from ourselves. so as the lenten journey begins, my prayer for you (and myself) is that no matter what we are giving up or even adding to our lives, may whatever it is, bring us closer to HIM, which in the end, is where we were all created to be. have a blessed lent.

ps. i know this is not the “ideal” Jesus, i can’t even imagine Him not as jim caviezal, which is erroneous as well, but one can’t help but be touched by this video.
