Markings

catholic-guide-ash-wednesday

I don’t know who
– or what –
put the question,
I don’t know
when it was put.
I don’t even
remember answering.
But at some moment
I did answer yes
to Someone
– Or something _
and from that hour
I was certain
that existence
is meaningful
and that, therefore
my life,
in self-surrender,
had a goal.

~ Dag Hammarskjold in Markings

  1. I am Methodist, but I noted several of the Father’s revenge or first in line markings Wednesday night. Regardless of the marking I get, I know I am ‘marked’ and looked after. Have a wonderful weekend. Peace.

Write it up, write it down, it will make us feel better.
