Hosea 6: " Come, let us return to the Lord;
for he has torn us, that he may heal us;
he has struck us down , and he will bind us up.
. . .  Let us know, let us press on to know the Lord;
his going out is sure as the dawn;
he will come to us as the showers,
as the spring rains that water the earth."
Healing and Hope from Him who is the source of both: my prayer this lent, not only for myself but for all those for whom I care.
