wednesday marked the beginning of the season of lent. truthfully, with all the busyness of life with a new baby & guests & returning to work, i forgot all about it. & so today i am thankful to be part of a community that reminds me. maybe thats the real purpose behind church anyway, to be reminding each other of the hope we have in the death & resurrection of christ, because during different hours, days, & seasons of life we're all bound to forget sometimes.
