HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY

GOD ALONE IS THE REAL VALENTINE

                                                       I will never forget you,

My people
I have carved you
on the palm of My hand
I will never forget you
I will not leave you orphan
I will never forget My own

Does a mother forget her baby,
or a woman the child
within her womb?
Yet even if these forget,
yes even if these forget,
I will never forget My own

                                                                                                                                           (Isaiah 49: 14-16) 


 For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son.(John 3:16) 

        This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins.(1Jn:4:10)
( Christ died for us while we were still sinners. This demonstrates God's love for us.)

HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY FOR THOSE WHO BELIEVE IN THE TRUE LOVE OF GOD AND THOSE WHO VALUE EACH PERSON AS GOD'S GIFT.

Ash Wednesday History

Ash Wednesday is the day Lent begins. It occurs forty days before Good Friday. Actually, Ash Wednesday is its colloquial name. Its official name is the Day of Ashes. It is called Ash Wednesday because, being forty days before Good Friday, it always falls on a Wednesday and it is called Ash Wednesday because on that day at church the faithful have their foreheads marked with ashes in the shape of a cross.

Ash Wednesday is one of the principal holy days for the Western Church. More commonly observed by Catholics, Anglicans, Episcopalians, and Lutherans, Ash Wednesday falls on the seventh Wednesday before Easter (usually around February 9). Ash Wednesday begins a season of fasting and repentance (Lent) in preparation for the Easter celebration.
