Our life is like a building, each day we add another brick, each day that person that God desires of us comes closer to reality. That is if we are working off the blueprint of the Divine Architect. Truly in many ways we always on a Lenten journey except that during these 40 days we focus our attention on it. We measure our days and closely examine our ways. Life is built one day at a time. All the days compile up to make us who we are. The dreadful days, the days we could not get it together, the days we felt close to God, the days we ignored Him, the days we were angry, the days of quiet joy, the days in our home, and the days far from it, the days we loved and the days we were loved, the special moments that brought happiness, the lonely times of sorrow. There are no "bad" days in this life because each and every add up to make us who we are. That is why we consciously attempt to make time in each one to contemplate the Creator. In this contemplation we investigate the realm of His mysteries, His wisdom, His power, His mercy, His love. We try to get a glimpse of the Almighty. That minute knowledge of Him reminds us of His beauty and awesome love and our smallness and our sinful ways. There was nothing that Jesus was not willing to do to bring us salvation, just fixate at the crucifixion. We must try at little more to be like Him each day, denying ourselves and carrying our crosses.
Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us. For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. Paul's letter to the Romans, Chapter 8: 37-39
