The Groundhogs will be heading to work today for their only day of Meteorological work of the year. Unfortunately, they are about as accurate in predicting what will happen as all of the sports pre-game guys! (Aren’t we glad that’s over for a while!)
So while those little guys stand up and look for shadows, let’s tackle the day without fear of our shadows and conquer it no matter what the weather throws at us. I mean, we know the Light, who controls our past, our future, and the weather! So Enjoy Candlemas day with some cookies!

32 a light for revelation to the Gentiles,
and the glory of your people Israel.”
