Remember that you are dust and to dust you shall return.
Dirt, dust, ashes. They were there at the beginning.
These are humbling words.
But they are words of life.
We are made of dirt, dust, ashes. The stuff of this earth.
The basic building blocks of life embedded way deep in our DNA.
We share this stuff with all living things –
from the leaping leopard to the cold-blooded snake,
from the mighty eagle to the creeping slug.
The Lord God breathed into the dust and it became a living being. Life.
Prayer: Breathe in and out. Deep breathes. Give thanks for created life around you. Give thanks for your life. Meditation: “O Spirit breath life into me.”
