I love Pastor Petersen's comments on Ash Wednesday because I love Ash Wednesday for the same reasons he does. On a lighter note, though, these talking church signs were hilarious and right on the money.
I've made it a habit the past few years to review/update my will on Ash Wednesday. I happened to write my will on Ash Wednesday, and it occurred to me that it was rather appropriate for the day...a reminder of my own mortality. And, since it's a good idea to look over your will once a year, doing it on Ash Wednesday makes it easy to remember to do.
