Can you believe it’s Ash Wednesday? Time’s flying! And this season of Lent will come and go in a blink. Let’s not let it go by without making it a time of spiritual renewal. So much happening in the world, so much going on in our lives. It’s crazy, just crazy. Let’s stop and smell the Lenten air. No doubt if you’re a year-round Christian, you’ve been looking forward to it; and if you’re a Winter-time Christian, right about now you may be craving this period, and you know it. So here it is: time to look inside and consider those words that stir our hearts — “remember you are dust and to dust we shall return.”
I pray the ashes you choose to receive today mark more than just your foreheads. I pray they mark your hearts. Have a blessed Lent season my dear friends and family.
