ash wednesday

Today is Ash Wednesday…Lent has begun.

I’m thinking about how Lent is a time of reflection, a time to focus attention on our relationship with God, through Jesus and the presence of the Holy Spirit.

In particular I’m thinking about our proclivity to do wrong things, we call that sin.  But I’m also thinking about how our reflection on our human condition is not for the purpose of beating ourselves up but rather, so that we understand the depth of which God loves us.

Ultimately we’ll wind up at Easter Sunday where we come to understand humility and love, we will recognize that Jesus has already made us acceptable through his work on the cross.

But for now we take a more somber focus…

Just some things to think about…

Peace

Jim
