Signs of Spring
Okay, from what the calendar says, signs of spring should be showing about now. Despite the fact that there is snow and ice and wind and below freezing temps, I can tell spring is near because sunrise is earlier, and it isn't dark when I pick up my six year old from choir. My walking trail is still icy, but there are enough patches of asphalt showing through that it shouldn't be too treacherous to take a walk. I heard a bird call yesterday that sounded springish. Maybe a robin scouting?
I can tell spring is near because Lent is progressing with the usual mid-Lent assessment of how I should re-purpose my commitments and either shore up or let go of disciplines. I have been reading the Psalms daily, but just today realized it had been 3 days without doing it. And I didn't notice until today. So I will be fixing that. I have finally gotten more recipes to make so we can be more faithful to the fast. I am not going to keep comments closed all the time, but will decrease the posts with them so I check for comments less frequently. I haven't exercised for a week (how did that happen?) so I will be fixing that today.
So, comments are open today. How is your Lent going? What signs of impending Spring to you notice?
