Remember our dust…

Mt Macedon after Ash Wednesday bushfires

Well, as Easter week draws to a close so does my series of Lenten and Easter reflections. But Easter season continues for some weeks now, and my prayer is that we can all use this season to remind ourselves of what is a daily truth: that God’s people are a resurrection people.

Here, to bring the project to a close, is the whole sequence of poems, collated as “Remember our dust: Poems for Lent and Easter Week”, with the final poem – today’s poem – included at the end. I hope and pray that it can be a blessing to all of you as you read it.

  1. Very, very good! These words especially got my attention: from “Saturday of the third week: “Jesus, reteach our grudge-bearing fists to open themselves in your Jubilee”. Then a bit later: “grumbles sound in stony hearts”. I plan to meditate on these words, and may memorize the first quote. It is just so easy to be deceived — again — into grudges and unforgiveness, isn’t it? Your words have made me think. Again. Thanks.

  2. I have really enjoyed reading these every day, Matthew. Do you plan to turn them into another book for e-readers? I do hope so, I have your other three 🙂

    1. Thanks so much, Lyn! I hadn’t planned to put it into an ebook, because I wanted to keep it free! But I’ll certainly give it some thought. Thanks heaps for buying the other three books!
