It was 6am and I was laying in the chaplain on-call bed reading a friend's sermon that I was going to give comments on.(couldn't sleep)
She wrote:

Lent is a season during which we look inward and reflect upon our own lives.

I would add that lent is a journey we take too. One where we know that it ends at the cross but how we get there is why we are looking inward and discovering what it means to be a follower of Christ.
So as I drove home thinking about this I realized how I am looking at the cross and not Easter. I remember being chastised by a professor about getting to Easter without the cross. The cross is a sign of violence and death and we have to get to it in order to have resurrection. So I was thinking that I follow life not death so I am still hung up on the cross.

I made it how after "Snowmeggeddon" 2010. Roads were worse as you drove south. The signs said that I95 south was closed so I went for the BW parkway and so did all the Semis. I know they are not allowed on the parkway but there they were. There are so many trees down along the road that it created traffic barriers. I am just happy to be home and safe.

I threatened to cook Phil to groundhog after the weather forecast for this weekend. I had dreams of a boatdrink by the pool with a silly umbrella in it while the Superbowl was on. Instead I get the "Oh-My-God" mother of all snowstorms.
I am packing up to sleep at the hospital for my on-call tomorrow.
