Tonight I will walk into my church. Through dim lights I will find my seat and be surrounded by others to begin this season. I will listen to the reflection given and I will confess my sins. I will walk through the Stations of the Cross. I will receive ash upon my head. But I don’t need to wait until tonight to see the ash rubbed in my skin. I carry it with me each day. I feel it through everything I touch. The dust won’t come off. It has left a shadow etched into my skin and deep into the marrow.

The dreams I had, ones whispered from God Himself. Doors slammed. Plans changed. Left turn after left turn. Burnt. Ash.


Please join me at The Story Sessions to read the rest? We'd love to have you.
