bruiloft te Kana

Monday, First Week of Lent

The text from John for this day in Lent is about a miracle. When there happens to be not enough wine at a wedding, Jesus changes water into wine, so there is enough for everybody. Wine symbolizes joy, and wine refers to the kingdom of God where there is plenty of food and drink for everybody. My question is: Which water do I want to change into wine?

I have pulled Nine of Pentacles from the Tarot of the Secret Forest. 

                   

A woman resides high up in a tree. She is waiting for the bird. What is that woman doing up in a tree? She would be much better of on the ground. There she could look for food and nourishment herself. Ah well, some situations can not be changed by oneself. Here we have one of them; the woman cannot get out of her tree for some reason. The water in my life that I want to change into wine is that I was able to climb out of this tree.
