Ashes and Sackcloth
Lent is upon us. At our Ash Wednesday service, we received ashes and sackcloth...bags. The bags are filled with slips of paper that contain a suggestion for daily disciplines. I'm going to try to post each one on my facebook page along with my ponderings about each one and the prayers I lift to God. I'll try to post them here in the Pastor's Ponderings as well. You're welcome to join me in my daily discipline, or grab a bag of your own. Post your disciplines in the comments or your ponderings about mine. I've never been a blogger, so here goes!
I'm a wife, mom, pastor, human...probably not in that order. I struggle each day to be faithful to God, to my family and to my call as a Christian and all of those previously-mentioned roles. I pray to be positive, kind and thoughtful, but tend to fall short on all counts. I am inspired by sunrises and enjoy taking pictures (mostly my kids, deer in the yard and sunrises). I waste time playing stupid computer games and wishing I'd been better at all of the aforementioned roles. ;-)
