Lent Day 8

First Signs

For no one can lay any foundation other than the one that has been laid… 1 Corinthians 2:14-3:15  The bitter winter has everyone wondering when spring will arrive. Just the other day I saw evidence that in fact it’s waiting its proper time as it always does. Buds peeping out from the garden and bluebirds fluttering their wings as they forage for insects assures us that spring is on it’s way. Although the actual date of it’s arrival is March 20th we know that “winter like” conditions have a way of sneaking in. Much the same way our foundation in Christ is set. It can’t be moved. Sure we have those “winter-like” days but in due time, parallel to the green buds and the bluebirds, the seeds planted in the foundation that is Christ always springs forth.
