Snow changes even the most familiar walks. The swollen stream under the bridge looks cold and uninviting . The ground hard underfoot . The light glistens on the snowy trees and highlights the rise of the steep steps climbing upwards.
Its not clear where the steps lead, but footsteps show that someone has already walked this way.
Imagine yourself in this picture .
As you cross the bridge , what are you feeling and thinking ?
Looking up the steps, where do you imagine they are leading you ?
What are you hoping for ?
Jesus, our way , our hope, our guide; give us grace to follow where you lead as we walk with you this Lent. Amen
