On the Eve of Ash Wednesday
Of Spring and new life
Of the Lenten journey
I am overwhelmed with too much
Too many tasks, responsibilities, voices
Too many distractions and demands
Take this frozen and tired soul, Loving God
Nurture within me sustaining life
Coax from me only that which is needed
Let me shed the darkness
That I might reach toward your light
Let me empty cluttered spaces
That there might be a home for you
Melt me, mold me, fill me, use me,
On this Eve of Ash Wednesday

Beautiful! This is a gift to me. This is just the prayer I need to say, but which I could not clear my brain enough to form on my own. Praising God for the fellowship!
So grateful. Blessings to you!
