Tee hee -- oh well. :D


I thought we were paragons of quiet sanctity. Actually at that moment, Sophia was explaining to me with that worried, deeply thoughtful look on her face, that she could not take Jesus in her hand yet, and I was saying that her day will come. Theology happens when it happens.


Mass is over for me as soon as I sit behind a baby. A BABY! One of God's greatest creations. I'll never get God points and I'm okay with that.


I believe God only gives points during the other 188 hours in the week when we aren't sitting in a pew. Too many people I know punch that "church time" card on Sundays and live the other 188 hours less than Christian like. I think God is just happy to see us together on Sundays, no matter where our minds wander too mid-mass.
Miss your posts as always gf! So happy to see you on again.

  • I discovered a long time ago that writing of the small things of the day, the trivial matters of the heart, the inconsequential but near things of this living, was the only kind of creative work which I could accomplish with any sincerity or grace. - E.B. White

  • I felt that I was packaging something as delicately pervasive as smoke, one box after another, in that room, where my only duty was to describe reality as it had come to me – to give the mundane its beautiful due. -John Updike
