But what about the day before February 14th this year?
Did you know it’s
Tonight our family will attend church services and
have ashes placed on our foreheads.
This is a reminder of the the
40 days our Lord spent in the wilderness and was tempted by Satan.
It is a time to meditate on our Savior and prepare
for the celebration of Easter.
In the past I have “given up” something for Lent. This year, time has gotten
away from me or shall I say I didn’t focus on what I should have early enough.
I have not chosen something to “give up”.
The thought crossed my mind a few months ago to do something for
others daily instead. I plan to get off here and meditate on it.
I encourage you to attend an Ash Wednesday service somewhere.
It is usually moving for me, not only for my own faith.
But as I watch my youngest child have ashes placed
upon her forehead, takes me somewhere that is hard to describe.
This act gives her father & I an opportunity to explain the story,
which gives me peace.
Peace because I know she will grow up, knowing what her GOD did for her.
My hope is that this will bring her peace throughout her life.
Blessings to you,
