Ash Wednesday – Galatians 6:2 – Dust Heals

Galatians 6:2 Carry each other’s burdens and so you will fulfill the law of Christ. (CEB)

Dust Heals…


Dusty road

Dusty boots

Dusty boots walking the road

Aching feet, oozing blisters, holes in soles

Dusty boots have stories to tell

Stories that heal



Dusty wheel

Dusty hands

Dusty hands moulding the chalice

Stiff fingers, cakey palms, covered in clay

Dusty hands have stories to tell.

Stories that heal



Dusty table

Dusty words

Dusty words proclaiming new life

Death threats, broken body, holes in hands

Dusty words have a stories to tell

Stories that heal


May Ash Wednesday love stir your soul, awaken you, and send you into a wilderness searching for the truth so that you may turn to the One who gives you strength, love and forgiveness.  Enter into the Truth, and see the journey with fresh eyes, real words, and new ears.  Hear the stories that heal.

With a grateful heart,


(c) 2019 Rev. Dr. Lil Smith
