The Time Is Ripe
Near the beginning of Mark's Gospel Jesus says what he is all about, "The time is ripe. God's Rule is at hand. Change your lives and believe in the Good News."
Spring breaks out at the ripe time. In Jesus God's Rule will come to completion in our world. Jesus within us shares with us his ability to always want what God wants.
Thanks to Bill For a New Beginning by John O'Donahue. The opening lines take on new meaning for me in the light of my recent surgery:
"In the out-of-the-way places of the heart
Where your mind never thinks to wander
This beginning has been quietly forming
Waiting until you were ready to emerge...."
