Dust thou art

Angela Shier-Jones has a joyful take on Ash Wednesday

Yes.. I remember that I am dust - and I celebrate the distinction. For when you created the heavens and the earth you spoke everything - except humanity into existence. Humanity was not spoken into being out of nothing, but was carefully, deliberately formed by you from what you had already made, examined and called GOOD. Humanity alone was held in your hands and given the kiss of life from you.. remember you are dust - Alleluia!

I hate dusting. Maybe on Ash Wednesday. And then you don’t do it again for a year.
