Ash Wednesday

Ash Wednesday begins my favorite time of year. I love the message of Lent, the discipline we are called to, the journey of faith that concludes with Easter. I know some people view lent as a time of deprivation, but I look at what it adds to my life. We are called to examine ourselves, to draw closer to God, to strengthen our relationship with God. How can that be anything but good?
