Oh, satisfy us early with Thy mercy,
that we may rejoice and be glad all of our days. And let the beauty of the Lord our God be upon us; and establish Thou the work of our hands.

This year, I'm thankful that Lent comes early. I feel a turning in myself, as though I am a flower turning toward the sun. "Tear your hearts, not your garments; and turn back to the LORD your God.
For he is gracious and compassionate, slow to become angry, overflowing
in gracious love, and grieves about this evil" (Joel 2:13, KJV).
