On this cold dreary Lenten Monday, here’s something to contemplate. As we pass through the wounded paths of our lives, we often leave pieces of brokenness strewn around the most difficult junctures. We can let bitterness turn those broken bits into arid deserts devoid of love, or we can take a different approach.
can penetrate our being
and transfigure us in God….
Yes, through our wounds
the power of God can penetrate us
and become like rivers of living water
to irrigate the arid earth within us.
Thus we may irrigate the arid earth of others,
so that hope and love are reborn.”
