Mining our hearts

It is tempting to grab an idea from the Internet on how to live a Holy Lent. I catch myself saying What a good idea. I'll do that!

So many good ideas 
On how to live
A Holy Lent;
So many good ideas
Yet the best one
For me
For you
Must be mined
From the heart.
So tempting
To refrain from meat
When one is already
A vegetarian;
So tempting
To give up chocolate
When one does not have
A sweet tooth;
So tempting
To proclaim to the world
Our holiness
When really
We have barely begun
To walk that path.
We have each
Barely begun.                                
So many good ideas
Yet we must each
Mine our own hearts.
