A driver used her GPS to find her destination. Unfortunately, the GPS remained silent. Left to her own sense of direction, the driver found her destination. Slowing the car to park at her desired spot, she heard the GPS exclaim gleefully, “You are here!”
April has arrived. No fooling! Suddenly we find ourselves “here.” March alternated between lamb and lion. Lent is half over with its recent “Laetare!” We stare at the calendar and wonder, “How did we get here?” Yes, we are here! If our Lenten resolve has wavered, we have two weeks to renew our efforts. Take stock of where you are. No matter how you might feel about yourself, know that you are “here” standing in God’s unconditional love.
