These cheerful daffodils remind us that today is the first day of Spring - Thanks be to God! I'm always glad to see the back end of winter - though I doubt if we have seen the end of wintry weather yet.
Lent is supposed to be a time of Spring - a time of new growth. We pray for all those who are about to be Baptised or Received into the Church at Easter. We pray for ourselves too! May the Good Lord cut away our dead wood (turn away from sin) and nourish us with spiritual food, as we try to walk in his ways (and be faithful to the Gospel).
Let's make sure that we all blossom on Easter Sunday - that we all rise to a new life with the Risen Lord!
