Sunday Sermon and Some Really Cool Stuff

1 Apr

“Sometimes my days are filled with so much cool stuff and fun activities that it’s almost impossible to recount it all.”

It was pretty darn chilly this morning. I almost wore my sock monkey hat to church, but I’m going for a more sophisticated image at our beautiful new church. (Let’s see how long that lasts.)

My favorite part of Sunday morning is greeting at the door before 9 am Mass, sharing hugs and smiles, and seeing my little friends that anxiously wait to see what little treasure my pocket holds.

Today’s Gospel was the story of Jesus bringing sight to the man who had been blind since birth, a miracle that He performed on the Sabbath and was ridiculed for. The blind man insisted that only someone sent from God could do such a thing. The Pharisees did not believe and threw the blind man out.

Jesus said: “It is for judgement that I have come into this world, so that those without sight may see and those with sight may become blind.”

My take on it… We all have the opportunity to have faith in God and believe in a greater power. It is our choice to see and believe in miracles. Those who have all the money, status, and opportunities in life may never see what’s right before their eyes. Those are the ones who are truly blind.

Now, for more Sunday fun. I got a last minute text from my dear friend Sherri Murphy asking if I’d like to go to a play this afternoon. Well, SURE! I had just enough time to get home, and walk the dog before she was at my door. She had two tickets for the play, “The Dixie Swim Club” over in Grapevine.

We had a little time before the play started, so we walked around the quaint downtown district.

The play at the Runway Theatre was just hilarious. Sherri’s good friend, Laura Sosnowski, played the ever vivacious serial divorcé Lexie, that kept everyone in stitches. The five friends from their college swim club days meet every August for a girlfriend getaway throughout all the many years and stages of their lives. We just giggled out loud the entire time. And what made it even more hilarious was it was so true to life, and we could all relate to the outrageously silly people and antics of friends and family.

Laura and the cast came out and visited with folks after the play ended.

Then, to make a great day even greater, Sherri and I stopped for dinner at Ernesto’s and we had margaritas and Mexican food. Life doesn’t get better than that, mi amigos.

THE END….
