Travis and Becky sent me a small, spiral-bound journal for Christmas. I decided to use it for my Lenten online retreat; I can write my reflections in it and also use its unlined pages for drawing mandalas. I've written a couple of pages, and yesterday, I drew my first mandala. When I turned the page to write about it, I found this lovely surprise...a love note and drawing from my six-year old grandson, Parker! Earth, sun, sky, a dinosaur, a tree, and other things important to him. Hildegard, my Lenten mentor, found God is all things, but especially in nature. I think this fits right in with her spirituality, don't you?
