Ash Wednesday

Ash all over the keyboard
and the screen keeps freezing
and the internet keeps dropping out
and  the keyboard is inter    mittently wworking....

This is the beginning of the season of reflection
God, help me in my distractions
Aid me in my frustrations
keep my resolve - if not strong, at least steady 

Remind me of the possibilities
the positive things
(I have the sweet little dish bought especially for ashes after all) 
and remind me, this is the time for preparing
not for finishing
this is the time to slow down
not to rush

Remind me where I come from

and where I go to

and who I am...

dust to dust
ashes to ashes.... 

(Lent Day One)
