Today is Ash Wednesday, marking the beginning of the Season of Lent!
During Lent, most Christians Fast (abstain from something, especially meat), and give up things that are "extra" in their lives. I have given up chocolate, pop, meat, credit cards, and even my computer in the past.
This year, I have decided on a different focus - based on the following verse from the Bible:
"The kind of fasting I want is this: Remove the chains of oppression and the yoke of injustice, and let the oppressed go free. Share your food with the hungry and open your homes to the homeless poor. Give clothes to those who have nothing to wear, and do not refuse to help your own relatives. Then my favor will shine on you like the morning sun, and your wounds will be quickly healed. I will always be with you to save you; my presence will protect you on every side."
Isaiah 58:6-8 (Good News Translation (GNT))
I am going to GIVE AWAY something to someone every day of Lent this year.
Today, I am giving my husband a card with a message written straight from my heart about how much I appreciate him.
Simple, inexpensive, but meaningful and giving.
I want God's favor to shine on me, and through me, blessing all of those I come in contact with - in person, and on this blog!
So....I am giving away a 31 Gifts Prize to one lucky reader!
