40 Days to focus on God.
40 days to count our blessings.
Not 40 days to count our failings, our scars, our stumblings.
40 days to give thanks,
thanks for, the milk and honey
which sustains us through all the other days.
Thanks for, the countless blessings
which shower us throughout our lives.
Thanks for, the love which never ends
even when we return to ash.
Thanksgiving, a truly Lenten word.
