Once in 73 years
So, why am I saying this?
Well, Ash Wednesday falls on St. Valentines day this year, for the first time in 73 years. Both days are significant for different reasons, but the deeper connection is that they both point to acts of LOVE as their foundations. Ash Wednesday begins the journey of LENT, which reminds us that God loved us so much that he sent Jesus to live and die for us.
God's love is not a 'once every 73 years' event, but a daily offer of grace, mercy and love.
1 John 4:16 - "We know how much God loves us, and we have put our trust in his love."
Prayer: Thank you God that you remind us of your love on a daily basis. Every sunrise is a reminder of your great sacrifice of love. Amen.
Living in Grace
