The season of Lent--roughly, the 40 days before Easter--is a time of reflection and a time to strengthen our relationship with God. While reflecting on our inadequacies and trying to improve our ways, which we won't ever completely be able to do, it's comforting to know that God still loves us so much that he came to live as a human on Earth to show the extreme to which he cares--to die for us, his blood for our sins. We are forgiven, hallelujah!
