Hosea: God who is distressed for us. God who longs for us. God who complains about our love.
The true focus of Lent, I realize, is not me, not even my sinfulness. It is God.

Let us set ourselves to know the Lord
That he will come is as certain as the dawn.
Our part: to be open
To show our openness in little concrete ways.
