Lent is a shadows and light. This morning, the dawn dquietly and bright from the shadows of night. God’s brushstroke was painting the world with color! As the world was waking up, I wove my way through Psalm 139, one of my favorite Psalms
Though I have moved on with my day, the words in verses 7-12 are lingering on my heart: Where can I go from your Spirit? Where can I flee from your presence? If I go up to the heavens, you are there; if I make my bed in the depths, you are there. If I rise on the wings of the dawn, if I settle on the far side of the sea, even there your hand will guide me, your right hand will hold me fast. If I say, “Surely the darkness will hide me and the light become night around me,” even the darkness will not be dark to you; the night will shine like the day, for darkness is as light to you.
Stay in the light, today, friends. You don’t journey alone.
