Mirando: Segovia [and Lent]

I don't talk about Lent much. Too often, it's a sanctified diet instead of a time of preparation and contemplation. I didn't plan on doing Lent this year, but the Holy Spirit reminded me that I had something I needed to give up... forever.

The theme of control is recurring here at Live and Move, my constant struggle. That's why I decided to give up control for Lent. Boy, what a struggle. Enter Segovia.

Segovia, is a short bus ride away from Madrid. My friend and I planned a day trip. I messed up the bus time, missed the bus, and left my tickets on the metro in my rush to make the next train. My lack of control was blatantly obvious. I can't say I handled the situation perfectly, but I did pray.

Despite all the stress of the morning, I made it to Segovia. The sights were beautiful. We even took an unexpected hike. I'm going through Lent imperfectly, but letting go has proven to be a very good thing.





I'd love to hear your thoughts on Lent and such or just hear how life is going for you.

Share the love,

Taylor

    These pictures are beautiful! I'm studying abroad in Madrid this fall and you are making me even more excited, which I didn't think was possible!
