Wipe the Ashes From Your Face Before Pointing to the Ashes on Your Neighbor

My wife made a great observation after this evening's service.  She said that after receiving the ashes you don't really know that you have ashes on your forehead.  You know you have them, because you saw the pastor apply them, but you can't really see or feel them.  But then you see someone else, and the ashes on their head are quite obvious--hey! that person has ashes on their forehead.  Sometimes it can be easy to forget our own ashes while the ashes of others are quite obvious.
