This week in BEST LENT EVER, Matthew’s going to talk about who we are and who we’re going to become. And a big part of that is what we really want. And I think this Sunday’s Gospel gives us an opportunity to ask “What do we really want? What do we really want from God? What does it really mean to us to be the-best-version-of-ourselves?”

Sometimes, it’s hard to answer those questions. Other times, like this lazy Sunday morning that I’m updating my blog with pictures from the week (before the crazies emerge)–the answer is there loud and clear. I want this family more than anything and God has blessed me abundantly. This family helps me to be the best-version-of-myself.
