Almighty God, you have created us out of the dust of the earth; Grant that these ashes may be to us a sign of our mortality and penitence, that we may remember that it is only by your gracious gift that we are given everlasting life; through Jesus Christ our Savior. Amen
Remember that you are dust, and to dust you shall return.
Lent is upon us. What will you be fasting from, or taking on? I hope everyone has a truly blessed Lenten season, and really focuses on what this is all about. It is a true testament of Faith. Steven and I are doing things individually, but every year we take things on and fast from things as a family as well. I think this is such a powerful thing to do as a family, and I feel it really strengthens our relationship not only with each other, but our relationship with God in our marriage. God has always been the center of our relationship, and I hope to always instill that relationship with him into Charli's life as well!
Happy Lent! :)
