A Coastal Georgia Sunset and Ashes

This week was my first week as the Music Director for St. Stephen Catholic Church.  I'll write more about this later.  Needless to say, my blog time has been limited getting ready to take this position.



It was a busy week as we entered the Lenten Season on Ash Wednesday.  After today's 5 PM Mass, this is what I found waiting for me as I left the church.

The perfect ending to an amazing week!



An added note:  Ash Wednesday is a special day to me.  I'm always touched as I watch the lines of people receiving a cross of ashes on their forehead while being told,

"Remember that thou art dust, and to dust thou shalt return."  Genesis 3:19


My favorite Ash Wednesday song is "Ashes".
I found a beautiful 1:43 minute video of the song to share with you.  Ashes

I hope you enjoy listening and thanks for visiting!  Reia

Reia, that's a beautiful song! (And I love the picture as well) Attending ash wednesday mass never fails to make me cry. It reminds me of how small we are, but still very important...
