Today, Ash Wednesday, marks the beginning of the Lent season. This is a time when many give up (fast) something. This year I have chosen to give up all drinks except water and no more late night snacking. I am hoping this will be a season of reflection and renewal for me. I will be taking part in our Ash Wednesday service at Trinity, which I’m really looking forward to. I’ve never done it before and am asking the Lord to prepare my heart for what he will show me during these next 40 days of Lent (46 including the Sundays). To me, I figure this is the least I can do compared to what he has done for me.
