Sunday Sermon, Some Firemen, and Some Long Distance Gamma Time

7 Jan

“Yes I am weird, weird is good. Normal is overrated.”

― Mad-D

It felt good to think that I was getting back to normal, then I realized, I was never normal to begin with. No where to get back to. I hit the ground running when I got home after being gone almost five weeks. Now, back to my old routines, errands, laundry, housework, friends, dog sitting, church, walking, and so much more.

Dog sitting, and of course, dog walking.

It was nice to see the sunrise, then see the sanctuary of St. Gabriel’s again. Greeting before 9 o’clock Mass, was good and back to normal. Lots of hugs and wishes for a Happy New Year. Sundays are a day of joy. The Knights of Columbus hosted a pancake breakfast afterwards. Nice.

Today’s Gospel was the story of the Magi or Three Wisemen. I always called them the Three Wise Guys. A little Catholic humor.

Gospel

MT 2:1-12

When Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea,

in the days of King Herod,

behold, magi from the east arrived in Jerusalem, saying,

“Where is the newborn king of the Jews?

We saw his star at its rising

and have come to do him homage.”

We all know the story. Herod didn’t like this. He told the Magi to let him know when they find the child so he could pay homage. But, after they found the baby and family, offering gifts and homage, a dream warned them not to return to Herod.

After the pancake breakfast, a quick stop at Sprouts, as my tradition, for some much needed fruit and vegetables. Then, scurry home and take Bella for a walk. Later, a walk around the neighborhood, with a stop to visit Mr. Larry and Miss Sandy.

When I got home, time to make the brownies. A batch for tomorrow and a batch, hot out of the oven to take over my friendly firemen over at Station 9. I think maybe they were missing me. (At least my brownies.) I showed them a bunch of baby pictures.)

Hamming it up for Miss Toni. I got to see their Christmas tree and decorations, still on display. My hand-painted ornament was in a prominent location. It was a nice visit. I like having my firemen family, too.

Later in the afternoon, I was able to FaceTime with my grandchildren. Gosh, I miss them. Belle was sweet and talkative. She had all her baby dolls lined up, taking care of them, and arranging them.

Then it was time to say goodbye and blow kisses to Gamma. Melt my heart.

It was a wonderful Sunday… even if the Bears lost and choked and hit the uprights. It’s just a game.
