The Season of Lent

The Season of Lent

Ash Wednesday .. the beginning of Lent .. a Catholic tradition in remembrance of the 40 days Jesus spent wandering in the wilderness .. a solemn time that we as Believers .. all Believers .. are encouraged to reflect on our commitment to our faith .. although I’m not officially a Catholic .. haha .. I personally love the Lenten tradition .. the whole idea of giving something up and relying on God for strength .. and yes .. although it’s something we’ve learned to lean on everyday .. this process is still totally appealing .. however .. if we’ll really look at this tradition and allow our understanding of it to evolve .. we’ll see this season as more of a time of focusing on our faith .. and yes .. trying to live a more intentional...

I can personal attest .. when my...
