There is nothing wrong with a little repentance, but some ashes on your forehead does not cut it my friend.
Do you wanna feel good!
I SAID, DO YOU WANNA FEEL GOOD!?
Do something that puts a smile on someone's face.
No need to spend money. No need to advertise your good deed.
Just do it.
The best gift you can give is blood. You might even get some cookies, afterwards. A win-win.
Go to the humane society and spend some time with the creatures, great and small. Hug them, love them and if you can, adopt them.
Buy the guy behind you a cup of coffee. There's always a guy behind you.
Pick up trash. OMG, the snow has melted. It's ugly out there, folks. Believe me, you will feel good. And if you have one of those pokey sticks, you'll have fun, too.
I'm not sure if they just let anyone into an assisted living home, but if you bring a guitar and can sing a tune, maybe they'll let you in. Get to know some fabulous people.
Closer to home- hug your child. Tell them you love them.
The best way to repent is to move on, forgive, and walk the walk.
