Ash Wednesday………. To some it is just another day, yet to others it is a day of reflecting, to check the inventory and the archives of our lives to date, take stock in where we are and see if we are still on the track we set out on, or did we waiver from that track, has things happen that has derailed us from our original plan.
Ash Wednesday is the beginning of Lent, for those Catholics who don’t follow Religion as they should, it is also for anybody that wants to follow the spirit of God, for he does not discriminate unlike we the people of Mankind and the creation of the Lord God himself. Somewhere along the journey of life, we the people have ventured away from the true purpose of life, we have strayed onto paths that we don’t truly understand, in ways that we want to find our own fruits in life and want to put ourselves above all, as we try to take credit for everything we see around us.
God wants us all to succeed on our paths of our journey of life, he has real pain when we hurt in our lives, we are his creation and the warmth we feel inside our hearts and souls, is God himself with his love for us all, but what we forget to understand is, this love he has within our hearts and souls, is not just meant for each of us individually, it is meant for us to share with each other as we walk our paths along our journey of life.
To truly show how God loves each of us, he sent his one and only son to us named Jesus. Jesus like us walked a path along his journey of life, he healed the less fortunate, he cured the sick, he taught us many things of ourselves, but what he taught us most is to find the way to the true path of righteousness, so we all here on Earth can walk our paths of our journey of life, share the warmth of God’s love inside us with each other, so we all can walk our paths of our journey in peace, in order to be stronger and better, as all Mankind evolves over time.
The season of Lent is a special time, it is a time for us to get back in touch with God and Jesus, it is also a time for us to get back in touch with ourselves, don’t be afraid to show our love of selves to each other, it is also a time of sacrifice, we all have something in our lives to give up, that something we keep trying to forget, but keeps coming back to haunt us, maybe it’s something small but we are embarrassed of others knowing of it, whatever it may be it is time to rid ourselves of it, time to come clean in the eyes of God, so we then can come clean within the core of our souls. Through the season of Lent is the time for each one of us and it doesn’t matter who you are, to cleanse our souls of all the crap we have been carrying around, so come the time of Easter we can also rise up like Jesus did and be free, show more empathy and remorse of each other, which will further our strength to be better everyday of or journey, take this warm feeling within our hearts, which is God’s love for us and share it with everybody/everything that may cross our paths, which will help everybody within this Society walk their paths of their journey of life in peace.
” Lent is time to cleanse, to be free and be who you truly are, so we all can be free with love pouring over each of us as we walk our journeys in peace”
” Lent to some may be just another day, only because they don’t let themselves be free and feel the love of God within us”
