Lent Day 26: Sunshine

There's something about the sun. It warms. Burns. Soothes. Makes us blink. "Everything in moderation" is a good rule. Even sun.

I had a nice bike ride to and from NU where I had to run another errand. I've cycled over 40 miles the last 3 days. The electric assist is a godsend since we live just on the other side of a 450' hill.

The air was crisp, the light was welcoming, so I did a long route home just to see what was new in the neighborhood. Not much. Lots of houses for sale, people relocating, downsizing or upgrading, or just getting out of town. On a sunny day like today it's easy to believe that God directs our paths.

When the rain comes back, it can feel a little trickier. Hope there's sunshine on your face today.

*This is what the LORD says:
"Let not the wise man boast of his wisdom or the strong man boast of his strength or the rich man boast of his riches, but let him who boasts boast about this: that he understands and knows me, that I am the LORD, who exercises kindness, justice and righteousness on earth, for in these I delight," declares the LORD. Jeremiah 9:23-24 NIV

*But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people belonging to God, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light.

Once you were not a people, but now you are the people of God; once you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy. 1 Peter 2:9-10 NIV
