Observing Lent

Yesterday was Ash Wednesday. I haven't been to a service on Ash Wednesday for many years, but we have a new pastor who wanted to hold Lenten services and I was eager to go. Yesterday was the first time I received the mark of the cross with ashes on my forehead.

I found it a very humbling experience. Remembering that I was created and understanding where I am going. I can't describe it very well, but hearing that kind of put me in my place, if you know what I mean.

And then we celebrated communion and the combination spoke to me about God's love.

How are you recognizing lent this year?

I wanted to share this. So beautiful.
