Open Your Eyes: A Lenten Journey 3/22/17 Wednesday

See this tree? It’s a Japanese maple. This time last week I went out to inspect winter’s  damage and saw that it would need to be replaced. Dried out limbs, no buds in sight. I was kind of bummed, honestly. I’ve tried time and again to get these to grow out here. 

But today, a surprise. 

I wonder how much we are like that sometimes. Do we give up on ourselves or others at the very moment there are changes taking place that are invisible to us?

Open your eyes to the colors and life around you.  And give a second (or third or fourth or fifth) look to something or someone that looks done in. 

Happy spring, dear readers.
