Welcome back to the #40LentPrompts link-up. This week was the first long week of Lent and we have 6 prompts to choose from.Go here to Monday’s post to view this weeks writing prompts. Make sure to use the hashtag #40LentPrompts when you share your posts on social media.
I created these prompts but man this week has some hard prompts! I need to find some easy ones to fill in the blanks I have next week.
8. Reflect on your favorite Lent or Easter hymn.
There are a lot of songs that remind me of Lent and Easter and especially Holy Week. When I was in college I participated in a retreat program where we re-enacted Good Friday and there are several songs we’ve used in that skit that remind me of Good Friday.
Above All – Michael W. Smith
This Man – Jeremy Camp
Mighty is the Power of the Cross – Chris Tomlin
I know music is very powerful but I never really realize it until I hear a song I haven’t heard in 10 years and I can remember everything about what was going on in my life when I heard that song. Or where I was when I heard that song. This is really true with retreat songs. I’ll hear a song from a retreat and remember about the things that happenned at that retreat, the weather, the people. It’s really fascinating how much music can affect your life.
9. What almsgivings are you doing this lent?
I got an Operation Rice Bowl Box from church that I’ll be filling up with any change and other funds I have. My Operation Christmas Child boxes didn’t cost as much as I thought they would this year so I am going to send some of the money for that to this fund.
