Ashes of Lent

                By Dolores Fruth

 

We begin our Lenten journey

With the ashes on our brow.

For 40 days we wander

In the wilderness of trial.

The ashes are the phoenix

That helps us as we rise

Repentant as our Savior

Hears our humble cries.

The residue of burning

Is slowly left behind.

We seek a new beginning

On this journey of the mind.

The ashes are for cleansing,

An ingredient of soap,

That washes us along the way

To our own Easter hope.

As dust to dust we will return

Our journey will be done.

We shake the ashes from our soul.

Our new life has begun!
