Mike Jee told us about Lent and how to let the buds on the trees remind us of the coming hope and love of God. It sometimes looks so dreary and barren, but have faith that the branches soon bud and then gloriously blossom with fabulous colour and delights. Update: sorry about having to block out the faces of these cute kids - I am told that some parents are sensitive about their children's images being posted online without permission. My bad. Even if I don't quite get it.
