Balance is a good thing unless you are sitting on a see-saw and want to get off!
On Monday, March 20, both day and night were about the same length around the globe. People in the northern hemisphere experienced the spring equinox. Those in the southern hemisphere have moved slowly toward fall.
The Express News from the United Kingdom reminded readers what such an astronomical change means: that the sun has crossed the celestial equator, the projection of the Earth’s equator into space.
Equinox = Equal = Balance
Lines from My Diary
I like to live a life in balance, but at times my life feels turned upside down.
Here’s a quote from my diary written in long-hand long ago . . .

Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on thee.
~ Isaiah 26:3
