Remember you are dust. . .

. . .and to dust you will return. 

Ash Wednesday.  Our annual reminder of our humanity.  Time to slow it down and reflect on our relationship with God. 

Pat took his parents to church yesterday and I went by myself during my lunch break.  We got together for dinner and, as expected, Aidan noticed the cross on mine and Pat's forheads, said he liked them and that he wants one too.  So, next year. . .I'll take him to the childrens service for Ash Wednesday.  Where they will hopefully explain what the ashes are for and how we are to remember that we aren't God. 

Here's wishing you all a Holy Lent.
