Speaking to Lampposts and Watching Flowers Grow
Today is the last Sunday after the Epiphany and the last Sunday before Lent. As I reflected this morning on what my Lenten discipline might look like, this song came to mind and especially the first line "Slow Down." Listening to this version of it with more intention than ever before, I heard the beautiful suggestion of speaking to lampposts and watching flowers grow and asking for rhymes from the experience. What a wonderful way to slow down!
Will you join me in this slow down...find a lamppost, watch the flowers and maybe even write some poetry. Marvel at Creation, see God in all matter, all manner of things.
Prayers for a Holy Lent, a peaceful walk with God, perhaps even a transfiguration in some beautiful way.
