The season of Lent tends toward dark colors like purple, gray, and black…. somewhat like storm clouds. Living underneath the canopy of these clouds and inclement weather can feel cold, heavy and quite depressing.
It is wonderful when we see the sun break through the clouds, melting away the darkness, bringing light and warmth and new life. It’s comforting and joyous to know that Easter is coming!
Pray that, like the spring sun breaking through the winter storm clouds, Jesus shines through in the lives of the children we serve at our educational projects… and sadness and fear are replaced with faith, hope, and great joy.
Help us to make sure that many children truly experience the Son at Easter!
