The sometimes somber tone of Lent can at times be juxtaposed with the beauty of a bright Spring in North Carolina. Do I feel down and low or cheerful and ready for new life.
In other places around the world, winter is still in full effect. We barely had winter at all in North Carolina, for which I for one, am thankful.
Season is everything with the psyche. Seasonal affective disorder, beach season, the crispness of fall, the quiet that comes during snowfall.
Take note of the season and see how it is running with your mood or against it. How is the creator providing a day, a weather system, a whole climate in order to shape your life? Are you shifting with the seasons?
F. Buechner once said, "Preach the day." What a great thing to preach.
