Lenten Journey, Week One – 2015


Here is just one flower poking its head out of the ground in late February.  It’s beauty is noticed by people passing by and by my photographer’s eye.


Sometimes God speaks to me in a small, beautiful part of creation.  A verse in an old hymn comes to mind this Lenten season as I see this flower that is showing me the beauty of our Lord, Jesus Christ — “When the sun of bliss is beaming light and love upon my way, from the cross the radiance streaming adds more luster to the day.”  (In the Cross of Christ I Glory)

When I remember my baptism during this season, I feel God’s welcoming and quenching love and remember the water that symbolizes my new birth in Christ.  May this season remind me that I am loved by a God who shows me an exquisite treasure nearby just waiting for me as a gift to enjoy.  I am his and he is mine.

Thanks be to God!
