Daily Lenten Meditation

Each day in Lent I will post a meditation from one of our parishioners.  Their names are not listed to protect their privacy

Lessons for the day:  Genesis 39:1-23;  1 Corinthians 2:14-3:15;  Mark 2:1-12

How Paul preached the Gospel.
Verse 4: And my speech and my preaching was not with enticing words of man’s wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power.”

From the reading I learned that one needs to be curious and to observe to see the work of the Lord.  The more one listens and sees, the more one understands.

Some everyday miracles you see are love of our family, magic of friendship, smile of an innocent child, flowers, pets, music, and beautiful scenery.

When one sees and understands, then one can go forth and give of themselves.
