Sentiment Over Tradition

Choosing Sentiment Over Tradition
I’m trying to choose a Lenten sacrifice that will be in the spirit of honoring God. I feel inspired to grow a garden and create a beautiful space in my backyard. For me, gardening is mowing the lawn. Beautifying will be a new experience.
Visiting Home Depot will also be a sacrifice for me. I feel moved by the readings from Genesis about the creation of the planet. Maybe the sentiment is to spend time with God to see what he will reveal to me as little seeds grow into beautiful plants instead of doing things I think would be good traditional sacrifices.
