40 days in the wilderness...
Well, the season of Lent is upon us. Had a great Ash Wednesday service yesterday at our church. This is a season of repentence, reflection and renewal. It's also a season a sacrifices. My wife and I have decided to join a group of individuals in our church who are fasting for forty days. I say this not to boast, but to ask for your prayers for the strength and willpower it will take for my wife and I during this journey. Beyond the obvious side-effects (hopefully weight-loss) this will be a cleansing of the soul and time for a deeper relationship with God. They say the first few days of this will be the hardest. I'll try to keep you posted.
What have you chosen to relenquish for the Lord? I'd love to hear from you.
