Ooops. Another Wall.
The problem? I haven't been able to post here, and still the situation remains a bit iffy (will you see this? I wonder). I had similar difficulties once before - also in Lent, two years ago. At that time, we were looking at various "walls" that can crop up as we journey more deeply into living for God.
Now, while trying to find a "door," I've run smack into a wall. I can choose how to respond to this sudden obstacle. I can panic, be angry, fret, complain (I may or may not have had any of these reactions earlier today).
Or I could, in cloistered heart terminology, "look at this through the grille."
The truth is: this wall has cropped up between me and a computer; it is not a wall between me and God.
I could PUT it between God and myself, however, and I think a few good rounds of complaining and fussing might just start pushing it in that direction.
With grace, I choose not to let this wall come between God and me.
With grace, I choose to embrace the grille.
