I actually kind of forgot it was coming up so quickly....as in tomorrow it starts. I was reminded when I read Ann Voskamp's blog - she explains it really well.

When I started searching for ways to do it as a family, I found this really interesting looking daily devotional with some neat ideas.
Then as I continued searching and started thinking about the Holy Week services I'll need to start planning, I came across this video.
What a beautifully illustrated story of Jesus in the wilderness. How He loves us. How He gave Himself - Him Self - up for us.
What can I give up, even for just a few weeks to practice sacrifice, to practice dying to myself...to gain life in Him?
