“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.
Unleash the Magic.
