This week the season of Lent began. At our house we ate fausnaughts on Tuesday. We set up the cradle to cross wreath (above) on Ash Wednesday. You can see Jesus bearing His cross to Calvary and we will place a sign of spring in each candle holder place, placing an acutal candle every 7th day making each Sunday between Ash Wednesday and Easter a mini-Easter. Easter Sunday we will place the last candle in the last candle holder place. When I think of what Jesus suffered I can barely breathe. It is like seeing a dog tortured or a child starving. It makes my heart ache because I caused that. I was a part of that. I love Lent because it forces me to remember. The night before Jesus was arrested He said, “Remember me.” I do. Even though it hurts, I want to remember. Remembering, I invite Him to walk alongside me so I never forget. I love you, Jesus.
