Yesterday was Ash Wednesday, the beginning of Lent.
A day to purge ourselves of self-indulgent pursuits and to remind us of the hope we have for tomorrow.
beauty for ashes
strength for fear
gladness for mourning
peace for despair
Dying for something is easy because it is associated with glory.
Living for something is the hard thing.
Living for something extends beyond fashion, glory, or recognition.
We live for what we believe.

All of you who sent beautiful words of encouragement my way over the past few days?
You are each amazing and make me thankful for the ability to string a few words into a sentence.
Love you guys.
