preparing for lent

yesterday was fat tuesday. we indulged all day. polish paczki for breakfast. italian for lunch. pie for dessert. sushi for supper. it was decadent. it was over-the-top. it was tradition.

today is ash wednesday, a day of fasting. preparing our hearts and minds for easter. i love this time in the church. i love the sacrifice i can do during lent to show my commitment to Christ. i love how he takes my weakness and makes me rely on him more. i wish i could be this focused all the time, but i fall short and become distracted. i am glad i have a yearly reminder of God's goodness and mercy to me.
