Ash Wednesday

Today is Ash Wednesday. Here is a card just for you.
Dear friend,
Lent is always a beautiful reminder to keep our eyes focused on the cross, the heart of our faith. I pray that you may have a fruitful Lent to renew, repent, reflect, revive & rejoice.
In Him,
Are you giving anything up? Do you partake in the mini-Easters on Sundays during Lent? What's your favorite thing about these 40 days?
 Here are my answers, but I want to know yours!
1. Yes, I'm limiting the time I spend looking at blogs, am giving up sweets along with taking on a few things.
2. Personally no, but it's completely acceptable to do so!
3. Lent helps me recenter myself. I think it's a beautiful time for spiritual growth, and it forces me to remember the sacrifice Jesus made to show us his love.

Want another perspective?
He's got a good one.

"This combination of our dedication and God’s grace and power can make this Lent a time of real transformation for us. Every day this season, God will give us countless opportunities to come and receive from him. Every day, he will give us countless invitations to turn from sin and turn to Christ. And every time we respond to his invitation, God will shower us with love. He will take the 'little death' in every act of self-denial and turn it into a shining testimony to his resurrection." -Daily mediations


  1. I am not sure what I am giving up yet. I am excited for Easter though because I will be sharing with some of my non-believer family members I only see once a year.


  2. Found you through Tip Junkie and enjoyed your fabric bowl tutorial. I enjoyed this article as well. I'm following you now through GFC...hope you follow me back :)


Got anything to say? I'd love to hear from you!
