Then Became Now (Lent as Confessional Gratitude)

To lent is to remember
for a marked time not eternal
that our callow THEN has (like it or not)
shaped our more whole and
healthier NOW
so reach back, look back,
not in debilitating sorrow or shame
but confessional gratitude
that you did not stay the same
you became and become
by God's grace
so learn and love forward
