FEBRUARY 13, 2016

My heart skipped a beat when I realized it was Ash Wednesday (February 10 ). I longed for the journey that ends up with an open tomb and the cry, “He is risen!”
I longed to confess my sins:
not listening
not hungering for truth
being too busy
not caring for the “least of these”
my list goes on and on
There’s something about the disposition of the ashes that reminds me I am his beloved son/daughter.
