Tuesday of Holy Week

THE LORD’S ETERNALLY NEW COMMANDMENT

When he had gone out, Jesus said, “Now the Son of Man has been glorified, and God has been glorified in him.  If God has been glorified in him, God will also glorify him in myself and will glorify him at once.  Little children, I am with you only a little longer.  You will look for me; and as I said to the Jews so now I say to you, ‘Where I am going, you cannot come.’  I give you a new commandment, that you love one another.  Just as I have loved you, you also should love one another.  By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.”

John 13:31-35

Prayer

Restore us all the more deeply to yourself in these holy days to come, Jesus, as we remember your work for the world’s salvation.  Redeem us in our time, Lord, while there is yet time for us to renew our discipleship and follow your way. [Thomas Merton – Seasons of Celebration]

the Liturgical Seasons

Although we (speaking for myself of course) always seem to be asking for direction (insight/guidance), I think that the Season of Lent is when we especially ask for guidance – for direction (even if we think we know the way).

“I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you and watch over you.” —Psalm 32:8

which direction??

Will Spring ever arrive??

Early Spring in Denver, Colorado

We have not had snow in Seguin, Texas (although other parts of Southwest Texas were hit with snowstorms this winter).

These snapshots were taken April 1967 when we moved from Houston to Denver.  Hubby had been in Denver for a year before the kids and I arrived (waiting until the Houston house sold and it was the end of a school year).  He wrote about the beautiful tulips that lined the walk of our new home.  On the trip from Houston, we ran into snow from Amarillo until we arrived in Denver.  Our beautiful tulips were frozen.  Spring in Colorado!!

COME ON, SPRING!
