My schedule today is different than usual, so I’m doing this devotion at Panera while I wait to teach my evening class. My thoughts are definitely more coherent in the morning, when I usually do this.
I designated this Lenten season to surround healing, restoration, and rejuvenation for me. I think so far, it has been. And it’s no coincidence that it’s nearing spring.
As much as I’ve wanted to just crawl into a hole and spend the six weeks alone and isolated from the outside world, I can’t do that. I look for the spiritual moments in the mundane, and have found that they’re often one and the same.
They say that time heals, and I think that’s true in most situations. At the very least, time moves us away from the event that caused us pain, allowing an ever-growing buffer. I’m glad for that and for healing.
