Annie sat quietly in the back seat. It had been a long, dull journey across the plains, and she was indulging her imagination to help pass the time.

As they passed a rare grove of trees and undergrowth, Annie spied a railroad track floating above the brush. She watched until it was too far behind them to see.

Turning around to face forward, she said, “Mommy, is that what the song is about?”

“What song, Annie?”

“You know, the one about life and a mountain railroad.” Annie began to hum.

If not, give this a listen:

    1. We don’t actively celebrate Lent, but I do think about it as I have several friends who observe it. And I especially have considered it as I travel through the book of John and the Passion Week. Thanks, my friend.
