Psalm 25: 1
To you, O Lord, I lift up my soul.

The entertainment reporter looked into the camera and said that one of the secrets of a good "Red Carpet Look" is knowing what to do with your hands. Celebrities have their pictures taken a bzillion times while they pose on the red carpet laid out for them as they enter some festive event. The rest of us are simply those who watch or choose not to watch. Today we enter into the season of Lent and more intentionally into the presence of God. No red carpet but there is blood. And it is still important to know what to do with our hands. We use them to pray. We choose to look at our hands, imagine them filled with our souls in need of grace and forgiveness and lifted up to the one who is worthy of our celebration.

We remember we are dust and to dust we shall return. Amen.
Author's Note: ELOGOS will continue but I wanted to invite ELOGOS readers to participate in an EXTRA challenge for Lent. If I can find 125 people to commit to giving $1. a day for the 40 days of Lent, we can together raise $5000. to build a well in Africa through Water to Thrive. The funds are paid directly to Water to Thrive. My campaign page is: 40 Days of Lent Challenge - Water to Thrive
