The countdown is on. Only a few days are now left to get ready for the Lenten season. What a great time of the church year we are about to enter into. We start our journey February 10 (ASH WEDNESDAY). This journey will help prepare us for the great feast of Easter. (March 27), along our journey, we will have many hills and valleys to conquer. Perhaps we will be tempted many times just to hang it up. Take heart, just keep your eyes and mind focused on the end, and the blessing that will be yours, and Jesus will pull you through. Many years ago, Joseph and Mary took the child Jesus to the temple to celebrate the Jewish Passover. They traveled many days through the desert to get to Jerusalem for the great feast. The road was rough and dangerous, and they had to overcome many obstacles. The end result was a joyous celebration. This lent, let’s pray for one another, that we will all have a faith filled journey, and arrive together on Easter with the joy of the resurrection, while experiencing the mercy of our Risen Savior along the way.
God Bless You,
