Tomorrow, February 14, is Ash Wednesday, which marks the beginning of our Lenten journey as we follow our Savior, Jesus, to the cross. The church year begins with the first Sunday of Advent during which time we prepare ourselves to welcome Jesus, the Babe of Bethlehem.
January 6th marks the beginning of Epiphany, when the Magi arrive to worship King Jesus and present Him with their gifts.
So now we begin the journey that culminates at the cross. May I suggest checking out the LWML website, lwml.org, for wonderful devotions, including the Mustard Seed devotions, to use during this Lenten season. The Son of God came to this earth to die for us, for all of us! He loves us so much that He wants us to be with Him. What Good News – our sins are forgiven because of what Jesus did for us on the cross and on Easter morning at the empty tomb! Blessings on your Lenten journey this year!
