 I know my transgressions,
and my sin is always before me.
Against you, o God, you only, have I sinned
and done what is evil in your sight.

Repentance is about reviewing one's actions and feeling sad regret for our wrongs of the past!
 
It involves a commitment to change our lives and correct our mistakes, resolving to live a more disciplined and obedient life that honours God and his authority over us.

Repentance during Lent helps us to grow spiritually and leads to a closer walk with God.
Penitence restores our commitment to the Lord and as such restores our Christian living.

Ash Wednesday is a Christian commemoration, although not a traditional “church holiday”.
For at least 1 300 years Christians gather on this otherwise unremarkable Wednesday, to remember that:
· They are mortal and therefore have to contemplate eternity.

All our sophistication and skills are of no use or value when we are stripped of the options to resolve our thirst by our own efforts.

May God save us from our enemies.
May God save our lives from the sin of greed and falsehood.
May God redeem our nation and grant us new beginnings.

In our vision for 2021 it would be important to take note that what we want, and what we need, is not the same thing.

I am not an artist. As writer and blogger I paint with words, because I often see the content in “pictures” first, before I write.
But if I were an artist, I would have painted the first Christmas with captions of the physical imagery I find in the Bible.
Let me share “my paintings with words” of the first Christmas with you.

The shepherds shared a heavenly Christmas service with God’s angels and went to see the Child. “They made known the statement, which had been told them about the Child.”  (See Luke 2: 17 – 20)
But Mary treasured up all these things, pondering them in her heart.
And the shepherds went back; glorifying and praising God for all that they had heard and seen, just as had been told them.”
