CARNIVAL
He traveled down from Arkansas,
To New Orleans, for Mardi Gras.
"One evening of abandonment,"
That's what his trusted friends say,
"He frolicked on Fat Tuesday night,
And repented on Ash Wednesday."

Lenten Reflection
Self-denial is the doorway
that leads us closer to God.
To lose oneself is to gain
a deeper intimacy with Christ.

Self-doubt is the window 
through which the devil
makes his entrance.

Grace for Ash Wednesday
                            

                            We pray to you LORD this Ash Wednesday,

                            To thank you for this hoard of plenty,
                              
                            For us to be charitable to those not so

                            Well possessed of the world's largesse....

Premium Member A Touch of Grace
faith fills our hearts with love as sun through stained glass creates a different aura for each member of the congregation just forty days before the Son rises on Easter we move in procession, seeking the pastor's blessings Ash Wednesday is but a symbolic reminder our Savior took human form sacrificing, suffering and knowing of His fate all so we might have a touch of God's grace

Ash Wednesday
Leaves from palm trees burn,
Die into black ash. 

Like these leaves move from life,
To death, the lamb of heaven is slayed. 

The light of the world, 
Extinguished by his created world. 

His precious blood spilt, 
His anointed head crowned with a thorny crown.

Ashes from ashes, dust from dust, 
To ash and dust I shall return. 

My wish is that I may make it to heaven,
On today, the day, ash Wednesday....

Premium Member Ash Wednesday
confronted with the truth
I scurried in my ashes

searching for reasons
reasons I was spared

light came slowly
beckoning my soul

"walk with me" He said
"I'll tell you a story-
I hope you have time
your remaining life
it will take to tell"

listening each day
wonders await me

pictures seem fuzzy
then slowly reveal

His path filled with glory!

                       and beckoning

                                             still

TWO in ONE


Give me two in one,
Like shower gel and Shampoo,
Like Ash Wednesday and Valentine’s.

Rain dripped from my cap today,
It dripped back into my boyhood,
A different cap but the same cold drip,

Two in one, me and the boy, 
Walking the same, on a road.
Thinking the same – almost.


What’s really different now?
Nothing much I guess?
The indifferent drizzle is the same.


Give me two in one,
Like then and now,
Like Ash Today; and tomorrow Roses.
