Purple and green are liturgical colors -- the purple of seasons of the church calendar like Lent and Advent, the green of "ordinary time." We'll soon be coming to the white of Easter, and then returning to ordinary time. But while we're still in Lent, here's the sunshine and shadows of an African violet lit by morning sunlight.
And anticipating the green of ordinary time, here's some of the spring green I've see this past week. I'm fascinated by the variety of forms, as well as enjoying the green.
"Instructions for living a life:
Tell about it."
Mary Oliver in "Sometimes"
I've taken on a prayer practice of looking for the moments of light in each day, whether actual or metaphorical, and then writing or posting photos of what I find.
