Today is the First Sunday of Lent
In today’s reading from Romans 10:8-13, Paul writes “The Word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart.”
We so often look and listen around us for God’s voice – for direction – for wisdom. Could it be that what we need is a little less noise – a little less searching – and a lot more quiet listening to the Spirit who dwells within. How much more intimate can God be than in our mouth and in our hearts?
Everyone keeps asking – since I’ve moved from San Francisco to the Chicago area – how it’s going for me. How am I adjusting to winter in the midwest. Actually, I think that the snow is beautiful, and, really, it’s people that I miss. And I stumbled upon this quote the other day:
People don’t notice whether it’s winter or summer when they’re happy.
– Anton Chekhov
