The Day After

Faces washed - ashes gone - the second day.  So we are into our Lenten experience.  A day to reflect on yesterday's ashes - the prayers spoken - the songs sung - the thumb on our forehead - the ash that fell to the ground.  Did anything happen - was there a spark of hope - a glimmer of anything?  Why did we go - what did we expect - God's forgiveness? The end of the second day - close at hand - what lies ahead - questions - hope - faith?

When Jesus spoke to the crowds many wondered - questioned - speculated - sought answers.  Today we do the same - two thousand years later - nothing has changed - God is still God - Jesus is still Jesus - waiting - for you.
