SER.I.OUS.LY POSTED




Today I was off to a mission.....




....and this is what I got. Can you guess?




My Lentin Ashes. Not a sign of grace, but an outward sign of graces needed.

*this post in no way resembles or was a knock-off of Bossy's popular Guess and Press. But if it was, I hope Bossy is flattered. ..maybe.

Graces needed? Indeed!

P.S. Where can I get some Lentin Ashes?

Mental P Mama said...

I got my ashes and then I rubbed brows with three people... it was a good day for all. Right. Sharing?

Grandma J said...

Colin, you have such a big forehead..with that receding hairline and all. That had to be a sweet spot for the priest to work with.

BHE...I was gonna say, go to any Catholic Church, but I found out a local Baptist church is doing the ashes thing for the second year in a row. OR.....and I'll deny saying this, but once in high school, we ditched school and used the ashes from our smokes to mark our own foreheads. I know, I need a lot of penance.

HA! MPM, I must be channeling you....I was gonna scrape some off my forehead into a ziplock baggie and send it to Big Hair Envy.

Grandma J said...

BTW, has anyone noticed the Grandma J could use a Top Dog Treatment on her hair?

Busy Bee Suz said...

Good for you. Did anyone try to clean your face off for you? I love that part..."um, excuse me, but you have some dirt on your forehead"
Too funny.

Whew. If I had to guess based on that second photo, you'd ban me for life. Something to do with lifting up a horse's tail. But I didn't have to guess because you told us.

Thank you!

What a good Catholic girl you are. I am sure He forgave your youthful indescretion!!

You are simple beautiful, my dear!

Jason, as himself said...

I guessed it, too!

I'm glad you posted pictures of your real self.

AND...I am terribly sorry about my lack of memory. I can't believe I forgot the very first question of my very first Q & A, from you no less.

How can I keep my memory sharp? What's your secret?

Jason, as himself said...

I win!

Jason, as himself said...

I win again!

Jason, as himself said...

And again!

Jason, as himself said...

Okay, I'll stop.

...it's been so long...I first had no idea what you were talking about...I gave up the church in college when, missing my dad, I went on Father's Day....by myself- I saw a spot at the end of a pew on the aisle and sat down...and the lady next to me yelled,"YOU CAN"T SIT HERE THAT'S MY HUSBANDS SEAT!"...apparently he was helping do something...but I was so shoked and embarrassed I walked out and cried all the way home...and I never went back.

So what'd ya give up for lent?

Cortney said...

Good job! I got mine last night. Are you giving anything up for lent?

Grandma J said...

Just want you all to know, I don't give up anything for lent. I prefer the giving practice of penance.

Cortney said...

I saw Taken yesterday, I can't remember if you've seen it. It was good.

Pleasing Procrasinator said...

I remember when one of my co-workers licked her thumb and wiped off a customers forehead because she thought it was dirt.

I always forget, every single year, why people have that on their head. I am so wierd. I mean, how can you forget Ash Wednesday every year? That is just ridiculous.
