Open, receptive

I picked up the small booklet and put it with the other items that I would be using during Lent.  I knew it was from years past, a leftover.  But the smallness made a good choice for my purse – hopefully not just one more thing I would carry around for the  next 40 days.  Something nudged me to pull it out this morning as I headed for the couch with my cup of coffee and journal.  I was planning to open my Bible but decided to see what this booklet had to offer.  And there it was – my word in abundance, all over that first page.  Open your hands, open your heart, open to receive.  And so I continue down this path, guided by that word, open.
