March 7

A Thought: Another ‘Last.’ Last night was another’ final’ for me. I administered the imposition of ashes on my church family and community neighbors who came to our Ash Wednesday service. I was ok until I placed the ashen cross on the forehead of Tony Hilliard.
I choked up and tears welled up, and it triggered Tony’s emotions, too. The Spirit powered me through the moment, but as more persons with which I have had special relationships and conversations over these 7 years came to me to receive their ashen cross, I was once again reminded of this honor to be their pastor, and as always, was reminded of the Grace of Christ. It was special to have Carol Grace assist me, as well.
Jesus had moments of emotion in teaching and healing, praying and leading. God gave Him strength to power through incredible challenges—the Greatest being the Cross. Today allow the Spirit to power you through whatever concerning moment you may face.
Have a Thankful Thursday!
