May love and laughter light your days,
and warm your heart and home.
May good and faithful friends be yours,
wherever you may roam.
May peace and plenty bless your world
with joy that long endures.
May all life's passing seasons
bring the best to you and yours!
The First Sunday of Lent
To set aside 40 days in this season of Lent in order to enter into the desert places in our own daily lives and confront the temptations and struggles we face is a gift. We have to unwrap it and apply its remedial and healing prescriptions.
All of Creation is good and given to us as a gift. We are invited during these 40 days to take every gift, every grace, offered to us.
I think that the gift of SUNDAY is a marvelous thing. It is a day to rest and relax and to renew and replenish. We all need one day of the week to restore the energy needed to get through another week. When we are rested we can make our selves better able to help others and do the work we may have ahead of us.
I do hope your Sunday is filled with that wonderful R & R we all need.
As always you all are in my thoughts and in my prayers.
