Easter approaches and with it the hope of spring and renewal of earth as well as the soul. Whether it's new opportunities to explore, new paths to walk, or new ideas to unfold, I have come to believe that "always we are beginning." What a beautiful thought to ease the stress of performing, and to let go of the need to measure how far I've come. It allows me, instead to dwell richly in the present and to understand more deeply Jesus' invitation, "Come to me all who are weary and I will give you rest."
This idea dwelling and resting, played against pressing on and striving to achieve, is a topic worthy of exploration and may be an area to sit with in silent prayer, or to journal about.
The end of January many of you joined me for a Journal Keeping Day Retreat. I'm planning to schedule another similar opportunity in the near future, or if you would like information about how to bring this Day Retreat to your faith community, please send me a note and I'll give you details.
Until then... May you dwell in the beauty of this season of life..
