So, today is Ash Wednesday. Up until last year, I had never observed Ash Wednesday, or Lent. I loved last year's Ash Wednesday service though and am hoping to go tonight (Anna's been sick so we need to wait and see how she's doing.)
I don't know if I'll be giving anything up for Lent, but I'll definitely be doing daily Bible reading (hopefully also reading some stuff in No Greater Love and maybe from another book I got) and I'm also planning to devote more time to prayer...prayer for various friends of mine who are hurting, and then also about our family and what God may have for us in the next couple of years in terms of adoption.
Do you observe Lent?
