Thank you for the Ashes

lent_ash_crossThank you for the ashes Lord.

They free me from my strivings, my illusions of perfection, my resistance to admit that I am human.

The ashes speak O Lord:  “You are God, I am human.  You are Creator, I am creature. You are Unlimited, I am limited.

Thank you for the ashes.

Thank you for the ashes Lord.

They free me from obsession to the things I cannot change; they free me from my endless work and the weariness that flows with neverending tasks that seek to control what I cannot control.

They ashes speak O Lord: “Rest, you are mortal, rest in your God.  Rest and trust that God is in control. Rest and know of His love.”

Thank you for the ashes.

Thank you for the ashes Lord.

They free me to be dependent, they free me from the lie of self-dependency.

The ashes speak O Lord, and I thank you for the ashes.
