Although we have Psalm 95 again today as the response to the lectionary’s first reading (“If today you hear God’s voice, harden not your hearts…”) I can’t imagine having a hardened heart today! Our congress has just passed a gigantic stimulus bill that will benefit the people who actually need the money! Vaccinations are happening in numbers we couldn’t have imagined a few months ago. (My first shot is on 3/29!) And this morning, I could hardly think because the chorus of birds outside was just about deafening! All of this purports to announce the spring we have longed for and even if it is just a promise to be fulfilled next month or later…it cannot be denied today. It will come!
I need to go and open my window now to smell the beautiful fragrances of the day…Pass along a smile, won’t you?
