Today is Ash Wednesday and the start of Lent. It is also the start of fasting and abstinence. I am fasting from a few things, but I also decided to join #40DaysinChristianLife by posting a picture a day of my Christian Life 🙂
I had the first day planned already. I was going to go to Mass at Batasan at 12:30PM, get the cross of ash on my forehead and then take a picture of it. And blog about sacrifice and all that it symbolizes. But, we all know that our plans aren’t always the best plans.
I brought the girls to school so that Des could go to Mass. Ankoi went with us. When Ankoi and I got home, he rushed up the stairs and chased the dogs. He then saw chickens and started climbing up the mountain to catch them. Dogs and chickens. Nature and children.
Life is simpler than we think. And that’s what this Lenten season is starting to tell me. Get rid of all the excess and go back to the basics. Turn off all those things which distract me from Him and go back to what I fell in love with in the first place.
Run after dogs. Chase chickens. Climb mountains.
Day 1 of 40.
