Sunday Sermon and Other Stuff

20 May

“Stick to love; it is heavy and it will carry you. Avoid hatred; it is heavy and you have to carry it. It is left to you to make your choice.”

A beautiful sunny Sunday morning after nasty storms yesterday. It’s always a pleasure to greet at the door before Mass. I was able to see the Chateau bus pull around the side at 8:30, so I scooted over there to greet and the adorable elderly ladies from the senior complex, then I scurried back to the front doors, I don’t get to greet them and hug them like at the old church because they get dropped off at the closer side door at the new church, I miss their smiling faces on Sunday. But, I did get to see them Wednesday when I picked them up and took them back from their Life Touch photo shoot for the new directory at church.

Today’s Gospel reading was such an important message. Plain and simple…Love one another.

34A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another; even as I have loved you, that you also love one another. 35By this all men will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.”

After Mass, their was a pancake breakfast sponsored by the Knights of Columbus. It’s nice to sit and mingle, chat and have coffee with people that you might not get a chance to talk to. I bumped into Father Robert and Mary, so of course I had to say, “Selfie time, Father.”

After Mass, I went over to Walmart, yet again, because my low tire light came on for about the tenth time. They usually put air in it and its fine for a couple-three weeks, then lights up again. I asked them to check it “again and thoroughly.”‘they said it would be a while, so I called Zelda. We were supposed to meet for lunch, so she offered to pick me up and we went over to Nom Nom for a veggie burrito bowl. They called to say my car was ready.

When I went to the desk, I asked the lady who handed me my keys what they did, and she looked at the print out and said, “Fixed flat tire.” I’m not sure what they did. Maybe they just put air in it again. But, if that darn light goes on again in a couple of weeks, I’m going to have trouble following that commandment about “You have to love one another.”

Then, the highlight of my day is the Sunday evening FaceTime call with the grandchildren. Now, these adorable little faces…what’s not to love.

Doesn’t get better than this. Happy Sunday, my friends.
