A few weeks ago, I stopped at a Thrift store while on a trip out of town. I had finished listening to a book on tape and hoped to find something else for my road trip home. I found a wonderful CD with the music of a cadre of amazing Irish female singers. One of the songs has become a favorite; "Solid Ground" by Dolores Keane. The chorus or refrain says:
It's the land-it is our wisdom
It's the land-it shines us through
It's the land-it feeds our children
It's the land-you cannot own the land
The land owns you
The land . . . during this season of Lent, I aim to be out in the land--planting and praying.
