the beginning of Lent

Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of the Season of Lent. It is a Season of penance, reflection, and fasting which prepares us for Christ's Resurrection on Easter Sunday, through which we attain redemption.

Remember, it isn't the "what" that you are giving up, but the personal sacrifice you are making for Him.

Edited to add: There's a great post on Ash Wednesday from one of my blog readers here.

I was reading your post and I thought "hmm I wonder who else wrote about Ash Wednesday." I was so excited when up popped my blog.
Thank you so much...that was so sweet.

I wish I did live closer. I would love to come to your church. It sounds like an amazing place.

Have a wonderful weekend!
