Ash Wednesday – the beginning of praise

praise4You’ve probably heard the saying “Inch by inch, life is a cinch. Yard by yard life is hard.” As I start my Lenten journey I take a deep breath and wonder how I’ll ever persevere through 40 days. But 40 days are only one day forty times; however, that still doesn’t make Lent a “cinch.” The day-by-day taking up of my Lenten resolutions reminds me that my whole life is just one day after another day. Begin your Lenten journey today, making just this one day a day to praise and thank God. Then tomorrow continue your praise and thanks. Day by day your life will become one big sacrifice of praise to the glory of God.
