I was hiking in the desert a few weeks ago and came across this heart shaped cactus. I am particularly drawn to seeing hearts in nature, on sidewalks; imprinted in the most unusual places and I take photos of them. They remind me that love is where I find it and to search for it. It’s as if God is sending those hearts as reminders that I am loved and cared for by the One who is Love. This cactus though reminded me that the love shared on the cross, came with pain, thorns and great sacrifice. There will never be any greater love. This Lent and everyday give a portion of your inherited love to others. “Whatever happens, those who have learned to love one another have made their way to the lasting world and will not leave, whatever happens. Amen.” Wendell Berry
