We recently welcomed an additional hour of sunlight at the end of our day–a sign that spring is near. It’s easy to take light and the changing of seasons for granted. I find it comforting to know that this transformation of nature will bring us to a renewed appreciation of the world around us.
We also recently welcomed the full moon and vernal equinox. Spring has arrived!
The change in seasons finds me anticipating new growth and colors returning to the landscape. This enlarged palette of colors re-energizes my photography and gives me additional motivation to get out with my camera.
In our Lenten journey we move from the darkness of death to the new light of resurrection, as we accompany Jesus on the road to Jerusalem and beyond. We are called to move through the darkness to embrace the light, to root out what is evil and nurture what is loving, to turn away from sin and embrace the Gospel. The light of Christ shows us the way.
“Test me, O God, and know my thoughts. See that my path is not wicked, and lead me in the way everlasting.” (Psalm 139:23-24)
