Ashed

“At an acceptable time I have listened to you…” says the second reading today. We enter Lent, ashes on our forehead as a reminder of our humanity and humble beginnings. We are by the grace of God, children of the Holy One. God will listen in these 40 days. Submit to the plan chosen for you.  Follow the desires that have been placed in your heart. The black cross on your forehead seals you to the graces of Lent. Tell God what you are hoping for during this desert journey and watch what rises from the ashes. 

Peace,

Suzanne

About sstyves

A Canadian prairie girl rooted in Ignatian spirituality, I seek God in all things. Whether I catch a glimpse of the Divine and delight in its presence in nature or in the beauty of an encounter with someone, I am ever so grateful that I can recognize the Creator. I greet each new day with hope and happiness, expecting blessings and miracles because I am created to praise, love and serve God. This blog is one way of realizing that through my writings, prayers, and photography. To God be the Glory!
