Ash Wednesday

“All are from the dust, and to dust all return”  

Ecclesiastes 3:20

And so it is the time of year where “we” will sacrifice, pray and serve.  All three take many forms and there is no “wrong” way to do any;  it is a HEART choice and a active decision in seeking a closer relationship with Christ. 

I’ll take my annual sabbatical from Facebook (and this year, Twitter).  It’s generally a little weird the first day or so, but absolutely freeing and by Easter I contemplate deactivating it all, except that I love the pictures too much;  kids grow so fast!!!

I’ll also spend more time in Adoration.  Feel free to send my your prayer requests in comments, anon or otherwise 😉

We will serve.  Wherever a need arises, it’s not a hard and fast decision.  It’s not black and white.  The opportunity to serve others is always present, we will just be more mindful of that during these 40 days.

And so, even though it is a not a holy day of obligation, we will receive ashes tonight as a reminder……visible….tactile….spoken

He died for us, so we might live. 

2 Corinthians 5:15
