A Season of Grace

In life, we go through different seasons.  Christians also celebrate different seasons in the Church calendar. Yesterday, as Catholics, we started the season of Lent.  Our foreheads were marked with ashes in the shape of a cross.  It reminds us that "Dust thou art, and unto dust thou shalt return" (Genesis 3:19).   I think that is something good to remember, to remind us of what is important in life.   For me, Lent is a good time to "fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal." (2 Corinthians 4:18)

Many of the things that seem so important to us will pass, just like the seasons.  But "what is unseen is eternal" and will always remain.  As I thought of this, I was reminded of this beautiful song...

Thank you for a reminder of Lent. I've completely forgot... shame on me...

I relly like "He has done great things for me" Is it a painting or a print? What size? Please tell me more.

Hello from Portugal!
Thank you for your post. It's so important to fix our eyes on what is unseen... And so often we forget about that simple true!!!
