“There is not one blade of grass, there is no color in this world that is not intended to make us rejoice.” ―
“This is a day of celebration!
Today, we are divorcing the past
and marrying the present.
and you will find God
in every room.
Today, we are divorcing resentment
and marrying forgiveness.
and God will find you
in every tune.
Today, we are divorcing indifference
and marrying love.
Drink, and play that tambourine
against your thighs.
We have so much celebrating to do!” ―
“Rejoice in small things and they will continue to grow”
Thank you all for coming on this Lenten Journey with us. May your Easter be Happy and Bright!
