Yesterday we celebrated the first day of Spring! There is something so refreshing to having longer days of sunlight even though the early morning hours are still dark. I always find this to be a special time of year when there is new life blossoming all around us. Seeing the return of the robins and even the Canadian geese signal a time of rebirth and renewal. Each one of us is invited to live these spring days with hearts full of anticipation and challenge. We are anticipating the warmer weather and the beauty of the sunny days ahead while at the same time we are continuing the challenge of the Lenten days. As we move through the days ahead let us remember that our God always desires the best for us and that we God’s beloved children. Let us rejoice in the reality that we are wonderfully made by our God who loves us beyond measure.
