Ash Wednesday

Today I went to the Ash Wednesday service at my church. The service was wonderful and the Associate Pastor had an awesome sermon on Isaiah 53:4-6 and John 10:1-10. Two of my Bible Study Buddies sat with me and there were about 30 of us worshiping together.

The exciting part was seeing one my buddies who has been absent for a couple months because of cataract surgeries on both eyes. Miriam is about 90 years old and a sweet, wise, Christian woman. I think of her as a living legacy.

Months ago the question was asked of us, "How would you explain what Christianity is?" Her quiet voice said, "I would quote John 3:16. For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life." A concise explanation which I loved!

Miriam is a treasure who will be back at our Bible Study on Thursday. Hooray!

Do you have a wise woman in your life?
