The Season of Lent ~ what is butt dust ?

Tomorrow Christians begin the 40 days preparation for the celebration of the Christian Passover and Easter.  Tomorrow is Ash Wednesday.

A Story

Kids say the darnest things.....
The Sermon I think this Mom will never forget...

This particular Sunday sermon....'Dear Lord,' the minister began, with arms
extended toward heaven and a rapturous look on his upturned face. 'Without
you, we are but dust...'  He would have continued but at that moment my very
obedient daughter who was listening leaned over to me and asked quite
audibly in her shrill little four year old girl voice, 'Mom, what is butt
dust?'


Happy Ash Wednesday. . . ."Ashes to ashes. .. .dust to dust. . . ."

                                              Aaaaahhhmeeennnn.

Isn't butt dust what they rub on our foreheads tomorrow?

Just back from the pancake-sausage-scrapple-bacon-preserves and whatever else supper at church.

Got home for spring break Friday night and haven't had a calm breath since then. More in a letter soon.

Love ya
Skip

Is that Lent? As a kid I used to give up something for Lent, but I can't remember what it was. Mighta been wanking. Anyway, whatever it was, I couldn't last more than a day.
