Ash Wednesday: Remember that You Are Dust

Another Ash Wednesday is here.  Another chance to open the ash pots and smudge the ashes on our foreheads.

Another chance to remember the ancient wisdom:  Remember that you are dust, and to dust, you shall return.

And yet, there is work to be done between birth and the grave.  Bills must be paid.  Work must be done.

And there is time for joy.  Every day God tries to get our attention.  But the messages are written in chalk, and our attention spans are as short as dust.  Today, pay attention.
