Is it spring yet?
Home for a Bunny, by Margaret Wise Brown http://readmeastorynow.blogspot.com/2012/04/home-for-bunny.html is one of my favorite book of all time! Margaret Wise Brown also wrote the classic, Goodnight Moon. Margaret Wise Brown’s life is worthy of a movie about heartbreak and an untapped legacy.
"Spring, Spring, Spring!" sang the frog.
"Spring!" said the groundhog. . .
In the Spring a bunny came down the road.
He was going to find a home of his own.
A home for a bunny,
A home of his own,
Under a rock,
Under a stone,
Under a log,
Or under the ground.
Where would a bunny find a home

Resources on Lent and Fasting
Trump, Prayer, and Fasting, on the Ron Sider Blog https://ronsiderblog.substack.com/p/trump-prayer-and-fasting-ron-sider
“When those who issued RECLAIMING JESUS met this January, we agreed with New York Times columnist David Brooks that a major constitutional crisis is likely sometime this year. So we felt led to issue a new letter calling Christians all across the country to gather together for prayer as a way of preparing for a potential future emergency. Lent, a traditional time for prayer and fasting, is an ideal time for this prayerful, spiritual preparation.”
Regular, Partial, Full, and Sexy fasts https://www.allaboutprayer.org/types-of-fasting-faq.htm
What are the different types of fasting? https://www.gotquestions.org/types-of-fasting.html
“The purpose of fasting is not to get God to respond as a genie in a bottle to grant our every wish. Fasting, whether it is regular, partial, absolute, or sexual, is a seeking after God’s heart, all other blessings and benefits being secondary to God Himself. This is what sets apart biblical fasting from other religious and cultural practices around the world.”
Why Even the Non-Religious Should Try Religious Fasting, The Huffington Post https://www.huffingtonpost.com/nikhil-bumb/why-even-the-nonreligious_b_3897268.html
“Fasting, as a religious practice, has been a part of human tradition for many, many centuries. It is mentioned in the Bible, in the Old and New Testament, the Qur’an, and the Bhagavad Gita, amongst other religious texts. Many religions require fasting as an act of faith or penance - often as a means of purification. In today’s increasingly materialistic and gluttonous world, regardless of our individual faith or non-faith traditions, we can all benefit from fasting from time to time. “
