We had a white Christmas. It changed our plans due to road conditions but it was more basic than what was planned and there was more time for reflection.
I hope that your holiday season was wonderful.
That is a good thing.
Here we are in a new year, looking forward to another time of change and renewal, which is more focused on the spiritual. Lent is a time for removing ourselves from "the world" and drawing closer to God. It is a time of healing. Ash Wednesday is, February 17, 2010. This is such a time of hope.
