Ash Wednesday

Image result for ash wednesday

We burned last years blessed Palm Sunday Palms and mashed them up to make ashes for today.

Today is Ash Wednesday!
The beginning of Lent.
40 Days till Easter,
(not including Sundays).

Lent is the time of preparation for Easter.
Jesus prepared for his ministry to save us.
40 days of prayer, fasting and temptation in the desert.

Lent is the time of preparation for Easter.
The day Jesus rose from the dead,
(after dying for our sins).

To Prepare ourselves for the miracle of Easter,
we too are called to 40 days of prayer-
fasting and abstaining from sin.

Jesus gave it all for us,
what will you give up for 40 days to prepare for Jesus?
