Magic Penny

Love is something if you give it away,
Give it away, give it away.
Love is something if you give it away,
You end up having more.

It’s just like a magic penny,
Hold it tight and you won’t have any.
Lend it, spend it, and you’ll have so many
They’ll roll all over the floor.”

“Magic Penny” – Malvina Reynolds

this song from my childhood came to mind as I thought about giving  (away)

something I love for Lent.

What’s so precious to us that we can’t seem to let go –

that thing or habit that really doesn’t serve us, but we spend a lot of time serving?

Think about it – does it have any real worth?

does it deserve all the focus we give it?

Take the challenge – from today until March 28th,

lend it, spend it

don’t hold tight to it –

let it go,

and on Easter morning, see if you feel more renewed, more awakened by

having had the strength and the trust to let it go –

rolling all over the floor, knowing it

doesn’t have a hold on you.

I’m giving away sweets.
