Wednesday morning we woke up early to attend our church's Ash Wednesday service. I think of lent as a season of darkness- as a time to reflect on the depravity of man- that we needed a savior to save us from our sin. After the service though, I left excited and hopeful. I'm looking forward to these 40 days of somber remembrance. I'm looking forward to reflecting on humility, on human frailty, but 1000x's as much I pray I'd look and reflect on the cross. Our pastor said it as practicing for the big Hoo-Rah on Easter Sunday. May our hearts be prepared to fully rejoice in our Christ raising from the dead finishing our debt!
