Genesis 3:19. “By the sweat of your brow you will eat your food until you return to the ground, since from it you were taken; for dust you are and to dust you will return.”
Luke 9: 23: “Then he said to them all: “If anyone would come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me.”
How bold Christians must be to wear ashes on their foreheads, and I love, appreciate, and admire those that will today! By no means does an outward form of appearance show what is in the heart of a person, but it is one of the few times in the year that people in droves of numbers actually show that they are followers of Jesus Christ as they go out and about with an ash cross on their foreheads.
I will be at work with Sean then go home to make dinner for Carter and Ammon, so I will not have ashes on my forehead this year. Maybe, just maybe we will be able to get them next year. I hope and pray so.
