- Today is Ash Wednesday, the beginning of the Christian season of Lent. Lent is the beginning of the time of preparation for memorializing the death, burial and resurrection of Easter. On Ash Wednesday we reflect on our lives, confess and repent of our sins and commit ourselves to live in a more holy way. We submit to the ashes as a reminder of the grief that our sins cause.
- Two years ago, on Ash Wednesday, I began writing in this blog. It seems like a long time ago, but two years is sort of like a blink of the eye. I have been more regular and faithful than I thought I would be. I am not sure whether that is good or bad, but it is true.
- Yesterday was my 365th entry in this blog. That means today's entry equals one leap year's worth of writing (at one entry each day). This is another significant milestone, to me anyway.
So, tomorrow marks the beginning of year three. What will that be like?
