Do you feel the urgency? Can you hear the call? Did you get the memo?
This weekend you are called and guided by your life of Christ to connect with those around you! Reach for the high road with body, mind, and soul to grow! Carve out a time of prayerful rest and reset!
You're able to do these things, but are you available?
The forerunner of our needs for this weekend is, us, steeped in Christ. We are each able to go deeper, stretch further and climb higher, but NOT if we're too busy to make that happen. I'd suggest this as a small bit of framework to open up the spaces you crave this 4th weekend of Lent.
Here's how you might answer the call:
1. Take a silent and prayerful 30 min alone...
Commit to more prep before going to Mass or in thanksgiving after receiving the Eucharist. Perhaps you stay up later tonight and hit that darkened silence and stillness with a lit candle and an icon or crucifix. Whatever you do, make space and sacrifice your busyness on the altar of your life.
2. Get out the door and exercise with others...
There is connection and community waiting for you on a fitness effort over the weekend. Needing to hear and be heard by your spouse? Accomplish that on a fit outing to communicate with body and mind. Want to see that girlfriend for fellowship? Meet up for some fitness at the same time. Kids getting a little stir crazy in the home? Head to a park and play really hard for 30-45 min. while they do, expressing your youthfulness. Pop on a Catholic podcast and just keep cranking.
3. Hydrate and detoxify the bodily systems...
This is as simple as eating really fresh fruits and veggies this weekend. Make sure to take in a good quantity of raw or steamed produce and more raw fruit (eaten all by itself) than you have lately. Saturate the body, filter the kidneys, release the toxins and regenerate the cells. Sip on teas, make organic protein powder into a thin and hydrating smoothie. Relax and rest the system with proper nutrition in good amounts.
4. Plan the next week with a quick sketch of what you want to do...
If you fail to plan you have effectively planned to fail. Our time of returning to the Lord this Lent is quickly closing and you'd better want to savor each fleeting moment. Planning will secure better practices so things are already prescribed for you, taking the guess work out, so you step fully into your daily YES.
If you want a life crafted with intention and action for the flesh and the spirit, it's time you were only just ABLE, but avail-ABLE. I'll help you create this and thrive. Give me a call this week to discuss for free what this could look like for you personally. Book me down below today!
Now, go enjoy an active and deeply faithful weekend with God, yourself and others.
Glory to Jesus Christ,
