Lenten Meditation–Make Straight

The voice of him that cries in the wilderness,
prepare ye the way of the Lord.
Make straight in the desert
a highway
for our God.

Isaiah 40:3

This is the time of year when I get off track.   Lost and wandering in a wilderness of winter doldrums,  I have too much to do at work, too little time at home and farm cherishing the precious relationships in my life.

Winter still clings like a cement suit having become a desert of deprivation gone on too long.   I yearn for respite.

And so today, a voice cries out to prepare.

It is time to look where I’m going, to walk a path with a goal in mind, and stop meandering meaninglessly.   My path, if straight and true,  will join thousands of others harkening to the call.

I am not alone on this road.  Nor are you.
