Ashes {Photography}

This year, I was hoping to do a 40 days of Lent photography challenge.  The kids and I decided a few years ago that it didn’t really work for us to give something up for Lent and instead we try and take something on.  Last year, we tried to do a couple random acts of kindness every Sunday in Lent (and hopefully continue on).  Well, we all know my track record with blog posting so I am going to do my best and hit as many as I can.  The first photo was of ASHES. 

Ashes are ceremonially placed on the heads of Christians on Ash Wednesday, either by being sprinkled over their heads or, in English-speaking countries, more often by being marked on their foreheads as a visible cross. The words (based on Genesis 3:19) used traditionally to accompany this gesture are:

Remember that you are dust, and to dust you shall return.

Since the only place I might find ashes is in our fireplace and our fireplace almost always has a FIRE in it, my pic of ashes are still a bit hot:)

Happy Season of Lent!
