Ah, the joy of being able to Google and find out the answers. In fact, today I only had to get as far as "why is it called ...." and Google automatically added on "Good Friday". And here was the answer I found.
This week I read and then it's spring to the kids. One of the parts of the book is that you plant seeds, and then you wait ... and wait ... and worry ... and wait ... are the seeds ok?
Lent has been like that this year. Maybe early Spring is always like that. We have sowed the seeds, and we've endured the rain and the mud. The stone has been rolled over the cave. Now what is going on in there? We can't see, and it is so hard to wait.
