One unexpected advantage of having a whole row of fake, removable teeth in front is that I cannot bite my fingernails. (I actually can't bite anything with those front teeth, which means I've had to adjust my eating habits quite a bit and that's been annoying, but it's still Lent, so I'm focusing on the positive!) It's a bad habit I've had since I was little, but as I am literally unable to gnaw on my nails currently, maybe I'll actually be able to break the nasty habit this time...
Several years ago, I had the opportunity to create an Easter program for our stake (for those not familiar with LDS terms, that's similar to a diocese - several local congregations together make up a stake), including conducting our stake choir. In the process I discovered some amazing music that touched me and helped me feel the meaning of Easter more deeply. The piece I keep coming back to this week is an arrangement of "When I Survey the Wondrous Cross" by Gilbert Martin. Brings me to tears every time. There are several renditions on youtube; here's one I enjoyed:
"Love so amazing, so divine, demands my soul, my life, my all!"
