My thanks to Marilyn Laws Porter for "Lent, a challenge to search for the sacred."
In this day of turmoil, the routine and ordinary are indeed a blessing, as we see what life is around the world. We only need to be still long enough to see the wonders around us that are always here. And as we do, we thank God for those in harm's way who are making possible our peace and freedom.
So thank you, Marilyn, for your lovely words reminding us of all this.
You're right, you know -- the weather is a factor in all this -- but remember, spring always comes, just one sign of God's faithfulness. He's still in control.
