Weekly Update: April 17th 2009 ~~Greetings from Chicago. I’m here for a couple days to relax with Irene. The lake is a gorgeous expanse of many colors of blue. I’ve so enjoyed watching it come awake over the course of the day, from my early morning prayers and yoga, to this mid-day sparkling blue. It’s a gift to sit and watch something transform, and open to the soft and subtle ways that change sometimes occurs.
I invite you to spend a bit of time and enjoy watching something shift and grow—if a it’s a bud coming open in your yard, the colors of the sunset sky, or whatever captures your fancy—and just enjoy this transformation. Hold on to the lesson: that growth happens in our souls, even if it is a slow unfolding. That growth happens in our society slowly sometimes. Let’s enjoy watching things coming awake, shifting, coming into their own, its Spring!

Congratulations to Jen and Jason Zeck on the birth of “Ella” Elleanor Louise Marie, 7lbs 0.4oz 20.5 inches (“and so beautiful!!!” says Jen) who arrived to bless us with her presence yesterday! Jason and Jen hope to bring her to church to share. Meanwhile shower the family with love and casseroles and all those small things that make the difference.
