Srping has sprung
It's been a tough winter, hasn't it? Bitter cold, pouring rain, colds and flus, and many among us with serious illnesses. We've also lost some of our most beloved members in a short time.
We enter Lent in the midst of winter. We emerge from Lent in the full flowering of sunny, verdant Spring. And so, the changing of the seasons teaches us a valuable lesson about life.
The path from life's winter to life's spring leads through repentance.
So, make a true Lent. Because spring is coming whether we make the most of Lent or not. But springtime of the soul is a different matter - life's winters can last as long as wer harden our hearts to the love of God.
A new life, a new beginning, a fresh start, a new chapter is coming for us all.
Your affectioante friend and brother,
