Are we nearly there yet?

Started out with good intentions
create some space, carve out some time
reduce the distractions
focus on God
take time out
in the wilderness
It worked - for a time
But then life crept back in
disrupted the quiet
obscured the purpose
and now its virtually lost
Its hard to sustain the discipline required
when so much clamours for attention
and its a long and winding road
Besides, we know the story
it all comes good in the end
why pretend otherwise
when its all so familiar
That's why
That's exactly why
Because familiarity breeds contempt
And we want to experience the story with fresh eyes
from a fresh perspective
We want to find new ways 
and new reason
to explore the amazing love of God
That's why
Even though the desert wearies us
and Lent seems never ending
its the price we have to pay
in order to be even nearly ready
to celebrate the miracle that is
