Today is the first day of spring according to the calendar – March 1, 2017. Today we are also starting the Lenten season with Ashes on our heads, reminding us that from dust we came and to dust we end. It’s that time of the year when we take our life into account. We scrutinize every area and turn our hearts and souls inside out. It’s time for clearing out and making space for improvement. A time to face our monsters, the ugly truths about ourselves, so we can look forward to a more beautiful and real version of ourselves. It’s time to find out who we really are, our purpose, our reason for being, and to resolve without any reservation to be what we are called and created to be – the beloved of the Most High.
