Thought for the Day: Well today is leap day or leap year day. It’s kind of a strange happening if you think about it. Every few years we need to make a correction since the actual time it takes for the Earth to travel around the sun is 365.242 days. As I sit here just a few days into Lent, I am taken by the fact that the Earth needs a correction. Actually, the Earth doesn’t need a correction, but the humans on the Earth require a correction in how we have chosen to observe time. What other things in my life need a correction? Day to day, even after a few years, I might not notice any problem to my alignment. But over longer periods of time, an unaligned life can become a bigger and bigger issue. If we didn’t make the calendar correction with a Leap Day, eventually summer would be come winter and winter would become summer, or to say it in a different way, we’d be totally out of whack. Allow for this Season of Lent to be for you a time of correction, a time to make necessary adjustments that will keep you from being totally out of whack.
Prayer: I don’t feel out of whack, but I might be. Guide me, correct me if so needed. O Holy One, as I plan my path I will pray that they align with the steps you would have me make. Amen.
