dust to dust
Today is Ash Wednesday.
Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of Lent, a day of reflection and repentance from sin.
Today, we remember our sin.
I know, not the most pleasant place for our hearts and minds to take up residence.
But this isn’t where we stay.
We reflect and we repent.
We step forward to turn away.
We hold it before we lay it down.
We speak, but we also hear.
We hear as He reminds us again and again
of His grace upon grace.
When we reflect upon our sin the beauty of grace becomes infinitely more beautiful.
And grace is a wonderful place to build a home.
And home reminds us of our hope.
And He does not let our story end.
