How priceless is your unfailing love, O God!
People take refuge in the shadow of your wings.
Groundhog Day is a day celebrated on February 2 (today). According to folklore, if it is cloudy when a groundhog emerges from its burrow on this day, then spring will come early; if it is sunny, the groundhog will see its shadow and retreat back into its burrow, and the winter weather will continue for six more weeks.
Although it’s fun to follow Punxsutawney Phil and watch his shadow I wonder as those around us see our shadow what do they see?
Are you living a life that your shadow shows others the cross of Christ and His love. You never know who is watching and who might be saved as a result.
Jesus Christ is the Way, the Truth, and the Life. Jesus Christ is the answer to the question that is every human life. Only in a relationship with Jesus are we able to see the true meaning of life. Only in a relationship with him are we able to find true happiness and peace and the meaning and purpose of our lives.
Dear Lord, we pray that the shadow we give us will show the cross of Christ. Help us to show others Your love when they see us. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
By the way, good old’ Punxsutawney Phil did see his shadow and went crawling back into his hole signaling 6 more weeks of winter.
