Ash Wednesday and Valentine’s Day on the same day? How odd? They don’t seem to go together, or do they?Our Christian faith reminds us that God loved us so much…. and that we didn’t fully accept that love. In fact, we outright rejected it. But it didn’t stop God from loving us. What a gift!
Valentine’s Day is all about love.
And so is Ash Wednesday. It begins the season of Lent, where we realize that our love needs to align with God’s love. So, we put on the ashes of repentance and the humbleness of sacrifice, and work our way toward the Day of Resurrection….. remembering God’s great love.
Wow. Who would know these two days would be so integrated.
