Fill me up, Lord

"You will seek me, & find me when you seek me w/ all your heart," God says. But that is not the whole story. I'm not just a searcher. I'm also a hider. You too. We have to come face-to-face w/ our tendency to hide, to get lost. ~John Ortberg, Love Beyond Reason

Ash Wednesday

Ash Wednesday

Yet even now,
says the Lord,
return to me with all your heart,
with fasting,
with weeping
and with mourning; rend your heart
and not your clothing.

Return to the
Lord your God,
for he is gracious
and merciful,
slow to anger
and abounding in steadfast love.

--Joel 2:12,13 (NRSV)
