This is the day that the Lord has made. Let us rejoice and be glad in it?
It’s cold here. Bitterly cold but there are blessings to be found. The sun rises a little earlier each morning as a reminder that summer is indeed coming. A sign that the dead cold of winter will give way to new life. We will see spring again.
These reminders seem appropriate during Lent. Death will give way to life. We walk through darkness to get to the light. We are a people of the resurrection and if we persist, if we push through those bleak periods we see it happen over and over again.
It may be cold but this is the day the Lord has made. Let us rejoice and be glad in it!
