The beginning of reflection

Today is Ash Wednesday. I wish I felt more prepared, in heart, in mind, in spirit, for this time of reflection. As I get closer to the service tonight, maybe I'll get more in the mood. I'm usually considerable more excited for Lent (strange, I know) but it is a season that I really like. I think it is because it appeals to my introspective side. But I also just like the struggles that you have to go through to get through Lent. The struggles we go through really make us stronger.

I think this is why I'm so inspired by the families I work with. Under serious amounts of adversity, they have strength that just astounds me. Sure, some of them can fall back into the traps that they have constantly been in, but some have been through some seriously tough stuff.

So tonight I'll head into the worship service ready to be open to what God has for me this season of Lent. Lots of life decisions coming up, should be a great time to work through them.
