Marking Ash Wednesday

Today was Ash Wednesday - the first day of Lent.

It's a day of prayer and reflection.

One of the images I'm left with from today's
service is how lent is like a cocoon,

that we can wrap ourselves in it,
to emerge as a new creation on Easter.

Dear God, help me truly feel your presence,
wrapped around me like a cocoon wraps around a caterpillar,
during this Lenten Season.

Show me what you want me to learn
in this season of reflection and prayer.

Create something beautiful - just like the butterfly -
that will emerge on Easter Sunday.

Amen.
