Hallelujah! Today is the first day of Spring!

Even if your neighborhood is still digging out from snow, or you have to wear heavy clothing just to go out to get the mail, rest assured, the calendar has spoken – Spring has begun, and we can benefit in so many ways just from the knowledge that warmer weather and more abundant blooming is just around the corner.

If you’re having a bad day, remember that Spring is going to spring.

If your pain is particularly bad, focus – a little or a lot – on the beauty that will soon blossom and the marvel that is God’s world around.

If your illness is flaring, and you’re really frustrated about it, meditate today about how the world has been through a really, really rough winter – but God is now about to give us the gift of Spring outside and will surely give us spring inside, too.

Need something more tangible than a thought or a meditation focus to make Spring seem possible?

Linger in the Produce and Floral section of your grocery store and see the variety that abounds, now.

Add something enjoyable and relaxing to the extra hour of daylight we have, now, and put this “Spring ahead” time to good use.

Read the Gospel accounts of Jesus’ arrest, death, and resurrection, the foundation of our faith, and let the profound implications for each of us sink in deeply and rejuvenate your spirit.

In short, in all, add a little Spring today to celebrate what is and is to come. And let that, too, accompany you through your journey now and in the days and months to come.

Blessings for the day,

Maureen
