As we remember our Savior’s journey to the Cross. Help us to walk over hills, through valleys, and in the shadow of death with an awareness of Your presence. As Christ is risen may our lives rise like roses, breaking through soil that overcomes dirt, wrestling with thorns, and the poverty of a dry spirit that bruises us. Help us hold onto Christ the solid rock. May we learn from nature how to have perfection. We must be attentive to the seeds that grow in our garden of life. Help us to select with care the soil we plant. May we weed and cultivate our lives through prayer, and in communion with You and Your community.
