"Remember you are dust and to dust you shall return."
Fat tuesday will come and go and should be a reminder to us all, not to over indulge, but that we are all perishable. That life and love and happiness, everything we have and everything we are will pass away. It's on Ash Wednesday, that we hear these words, "Remember you are dust and to dust you shall return." A reminder that without Christ Jesus, without the work of the Redeemer we are nothing. We are perishable. We are dust.
Gracious Lord Almighty, I thank you this day that you have loved me enough to die for me. Amen.
