Oh, gracious. I am singing Springtime songs in my heart, but it is all white outside. Yes, it has snowed again and threatens to do more before the week is out.
Speaking of Springtime...My church does not officially observe Lent (40 day period filled with fasting, personal sacrifice and reflection prior to Easter). However, I have personally found that by devoting myself to personal meditation on the four Gospels and the life of our beloved Savior for these 40 days prior to this wonderful holiday, Easter has so much more meaning for me than if it suddenly comes upon me in life. Does that make sense?...I rush around in life and then ... boom..one day it is Easter, the most sacred holiday of the year, in my opinion. I like to prepare ahead of time with fasting, prayer, self-sacrifice. Okay, you get the point.
Well, here's a link for a Lenten Cleaning Schedule (spring cleaning with the object in mind of having the whole house fresh and sparkling for Easter!). I'm way behind on this, but am determined to get caught up!
Another link is to Alexandra's blog, Happy Heart at Home. It is a sweet poem, a kind of meditation to have in one's heart as we go about the business of taking care of our homes and loved ones.
Have a beautiful day!
Elizabeth (who is still yearning for Spring!)
