#HolyLens- water on a Sunday afternoon (and prompts for Week 4)

Happy third Sunday of Lent, everyone!

I hope you all had great weekends and enjoyed whatever you did. After last week's trials and exhaustion, it was nice to have some time to hang out as a family and rest a bit. I did completely lose it on Saturday morning over some dirty laundry and ended up shouting in the kitchen (breaking my no-yelling streak for the first time since Lent started), but my loving family members forgave me, and the rest of the weekend was lovely. I really enjoyed reading about how Rosie's weekend went, too...she and I have similar kinds of chaos going on a lot of the time, and it's encouraging to know I'm not the only one who can sometimes lose it with my kids.

This afternoon, I still hadn't taken my picture for #HolyLens, so I put a bowl of water (today's prompt) on the floor and waited to see what would happen.

Nora found it first.

She blessed herself.

Then Sam came over to join the fun.

Finally, Lucy couldn't resist- she left her work of smacking all the magnetic letters down to make them disappear forever under the bowels of the refrigerator to come check things out.

Then, it spilled. Dinner was ready by then, anyway- it was probably just as well. My kids love playing with water, and it's always hard for them when they have to stop.

For you intrepid Lenten photographers, here are the prompts for Week Four (which starts on Wednesday).

Also, if you are on Spotify and haven't seen the Lent-Inspired Playlist yet, here's a link. (I'm open to suggestions for more music, if you have them).

Have a blessed week!
