Amen to that!
And only a few have the gift of reaching all age groups.
You are blessed to find a priest that has it.

What if we woke up tomorrow with only those things that we thanked God for today?

Thanks CJ - that is what I liked about it too! I spend sooooo much time trying to get rid of the never-ending clutter that kids and husband bring, so for me I could really visualize what he meant. The funny thing I noticed too is that my 8 year-old daughter understood what he meant. I think homilies are a true success when kids AND grownups understand.

Have a great day!

Louisarink - I love that! Thanks for sharing it. I'm gonna use that when talking to my children and students. We hear so much about physical clutter (clearing out closets and organizing our paper mountains and whatnot), why not clearing out our souls and bodies, too?

Funny you should mention Ash Wednesday - tonight the priest referred to the fasting we're supposed to do as a way to clear out the clutter in our lives. I thought that was a really interesting way to think of the excess food I eat - as clutter! He said that things like food can get in the way of seeing what's really important, and although I never thought of it that way, it sure makes sense. Welcome!!

Hello, I'm a longtime sparkie but just discovered this page when thinking about the significance of Ash Wednesday today. I'm glad this forum is here. I'm an Army Mom living in VA but due to move this summer to FL. Thanks for being here, I look forward to the support both giving and receiving.
