The dreariness of winter is on its way out, making way for the light of spring. Nature's beauty is regenerated by the sun and is a gentle reminder to regenerate our relationship with the SON.
I don't know about you, but I get distracted by all the crazy and unbelievable earthly matters in today's world. So distracted that, at times, I end up neglecting Him. A heart filled with the Holy Spirit quickly becomes one filled with discontent.
The only way to get back on track is to "spring clean" the soul. I set aside time to reflect on both my successes and shortcomings. I write down all the reasons to rejoice in my life and what needs to be purged through the sacrament of reconciliation. The words create a road map back to Him and bless me with the peace that had been evading me.
Once that spring cleaning is complete, I have the energy to tackle my closets and windows! ??
