Today I will begin to declutter my life and mind, slow the pace of activity (the work of unwork), and surrender my false notion of control in preparation for Lent.

We confess to you, Lord, all our past unfaithfulness:
the pride, hypocrisy, and impatience of our lives,
We confess to you, Lord.

Ash Wednesday Service, Book of Common Prayer

Today I will go to God’s altar and place on it all the unimportant stuff of my life.
