And To Dust

we shall all return. I had an image, similar to this, in mind - including myself and my daughter. As we sat in church this evening after recieving our ashes i watched others come forward. There were infants in their parents arms, young people, some very aged,children, and a lot of us who would probably think of ourselves as being middle aged. But these ashes reminded me that we are all the same distance from God. A closeness He gave us with His Life. As it turned out, by the time we got home only my wifes ashes were still visible. But I still feel mine there, and am going to try and remember through this Lenten season and maybe, with God's help- even longer.
