Lent 17

"Ashes to Ashes Confession"

I am worn down today,
fatigued in every muscle
I am not whole,
not even halfway.
It is brilliant to be human...
oh but I strain against the ashes
the limits.
Heal me, Jesus, with the scars of your own brokenness.
Heal me...not to strength or perfection,
but to togetherness
to gentleness
to taking care of these ashes.
Be the wholeness that I am not
and remind this body of ashes
to rest my scars in yours
to live my broken life
fully.
