Thursday we will pause as a nation to give thanks for the blessings we have. For some folks giving thanks will be an easy thing to do. For others giving thanks will be difficult, hollow and sad.

Are you a “contemplative,” someone who experiences the presence of God in ways of stillness, reflection and prayer?

I like to think that the daffodils are the trumpets that declare the good news of that first Easter morning, “the tomb is empty!” Easter lilies burst forth in bright white color to bring light into the darkness of winter.
