It is Ash Wednesday: Do You Love Lent?

Credit: customizemi-com
Love will do all the work in you

Let's carry out Lent with love in our hearts instead of grumpy Lent faces.



Thoughts to Ponder for 40 days during the Lenten Season

I choose to surrender the clutter in my life, heart, spirit so that Jesus will set me free from stuff and fill me with His Loving Presence

May the things of this world fall away so I may fall in love with God.

God only comes to fill the empty places.

Grace does what I cannot do.

Jesus will have to do everything.

This is true humility

Pride entices me to work harder, pray more, fast religiously and perform heroic acts of virtue. Humility accepts that only God can save me and other people. It is my job simply to surrender in prayer and give Him permission to flow through me how ever and when ever He wants


“For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— not by works, so that no one can boast.” -Ephesians 2:8,9



About the Writer

My husband and I raised 9 children on a hobby farm and discovered fulfilment and joy.The very existence of a joyful mother of nine children seems to confound people. My writing is humourous and heart warming/ thoughtful and thought provoking with a strong current of spirituality running through it.
