Ponder: "You are dust, and to dust shall you return" - Genesis 3:19
As the Ash Wednesday worship leader places her or his finger in the bowl of ashes and then shapes a cross on your forehead, consider the importance of this ritual in your life and your relationship with God. Does this mark signify your mortality, or does it hold another meaning for you?
Pray: God, we often see our lives like dusty residue: temporary, insignificant and dry. May the gritty ash that rests on our heads indicate to us that we are full of your breath, not lifeless dirt. Allow this temporary mark to remind us that we are forever your children, bursting with energy and hope. Amen.

My husband started seeing someone in 2013 and we had to sell our house. Right now he wants to leave that person and come back to me. Can he be trusted again? What should I do? Thank you.
