Tuesday in the Second Week of Lent

Editors note: Due to a visit of a cute one year old girl named Lila Kelley Yingling and a last visit to a doctor the meditations were delayed. We will catch up soon. Webb

Think of Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel mural. Mighty muscular God stretches God’s full arm’s length to one fingertip and brings Adam into being. What Michelangelo doesn’t depict is what comes next, nor do we know ourselves, but we can surmise. God withdraws and although the spark of light given us by God remains; we are on our own to use it as we deem fit. There is a space now as God takes his arm away that a void requires us to fill. We can continue to reach out to God or we can move our arm in a different direction. The choice is ours. We may go in another direction, but later return our finger seeking out God later. No matter what, that initial spark, that initial touch, remains with us forever.
