I’ve never been that comfortable
With Ash Wednesday
With self-examination and repentance
And being reminded of my mortality
But the one I follow was all about truth-telling
Rather than being comfortable
I am not that One
But I am made of clay and dust
Human to the core
May the ashes today
Remind me of my createdness
My calling to be who I am
Who I was crafted to be
Who I am becoming
As my heart, my mind, my clay is shaped
Molded by the Creator
I am yours, Loving God
Show me the way

I saved this years ago and bring it out every Lent.
Thank you so much it touches me in a different way every year!
Wonderful, Katherine. Thank you for telling me.
