The ashes of today remind us that we are dust, and to dust we shall return. But in the certainty of death is also our hope - we know that we are more than ashes, that the Lord has breathed life into this dust, that we are filled with God's Spirit, that death is not the end - we're headed somewhere! So, how are you doing on the way? What Lenten practices will you take up in order to better hear God's daily calls and act on them? Lean on Jesus this Lent, and He will give you the strength to live it!
