Fit Bit (Lent/Valentines)

Fit Bit (Lent/Valentines)
Dear Friends,

     This is a very holy time, Lent.  During this time we are preparing for the Easter celebration.  How perfect that Valentines day and Ash Wednesday were back to back this week.  Our Heavenly Father loved each of us so much that He sent His only begotten son to live and die for us.  Jesus loved us, each so much that He voluntarily, suffered and died for us.  Because of Him, we can love, because He first loved us.  God breathed the breath of life into each of us and filled with His Holy Spirit,  we can accept His love and love others.  What a perfect Valentine.

John 3:16-17  “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”

 17 For God sent not His Son into the world to condemn the world;  but that the world through Him might be saved.”

During this Lent season, how are you preparing?  Many years I have run a Lent challenge were we try to commit to a behavior that will help our lives be more Christ centered.  This year, even though we are starting late, we still have time.  No one is perfect, not one.   It is not about us doing this perfect.  Let this Lent season; motivate you to walk a better walk.

What will you do to prepare your heart?

Be fit and be blessed,
