Daily Meditation for March 22, 2024

It seems that many people are familiar with the statement that goes somewhat like this: “The only thing in life that doesn’t change is change itself.” How true that is as one experiences the “ins and outs of life.” For example, traditionally the calendar would mark March 21 as the first day of spring. This year, the Vernal Equinox was on March 19, marking it as the first day of spring. Change! Perhaps you may have experienced some life changing events in this past year. How have these changes affected you? Is there evidence of personal, spiritual or social growth that has occurred because the event or events? Most often we are not aware of the growth these events bring about. After a reflection on them, offer a prayer of thanksgiving for any areas where these changes have allowed growth and change in your personal life, and its impact on others.
