I spent a few hours at the end of last week rescheduling things this week so that I could be at a friend's memorial service. Tonight, in about 10 minutes, snow fell so fast and so furiously that it looks as if all those plans might be up in the air again. Of course by morning it could all look quite different. But I see God's wicked grin in the snowy clouds gently reminding me that life is only fun if it is entirely unpredictable. And, just when we think we've got things under control, a wee lob from left field can always bring us to our senses. Isn't part of the fun of Lent looking for God to jump out and catch us unawares? - because she can!
