These are memories that Dee and I will cherish. Thank you Lord for children who share their families with us.
2. “Patience is not a waiting passivity until someone else does something. Patience asks us to live the moment to the fullest, to be completely present to the moment, to taste the here and now, to be where we are. When we are impatient we try to get away from where we are. We behave as if the real thing will happen tomorrow, later and somewhere else. Let’s be patient and trust that the treasure we look for is hidden in the ground on which we stand.”
I borrowed this from Steve Givens , his January 8th blog. The quote belongs to Henri Nouwen.
My patron saint is Saint Francis De Sales and I have my favorite quote from him at the top of my blog. I have to work at patience every day and pray to St. Francis for assistance.
It is not easy but I make myself aware of my imperfection, similar to recognizing that I have allergies. My medicine for patience is concentrating on keeping calm, not rushing and working on my "inner peace." I am getting better.
3. My brother in Christ, Victor, has made it through the worst part of his medical issues. This is an email from his daughter, sent out to our Cursillo family.
"Finally after SEVEN WEEKS in the hospital my daddy is coming home today!
Thank you all so much for all the prayers and support. I don't know what
we would do without such a wonderful community of family and friends. BUT
please please please keep the prayers going. This thing isn't quite over
yet. Now it's up to my family to take care of my dad full time, which is
going to be difficult especially since I have to go back to school :( and
there is still a very likely possibility that he will need surgery once he
gains back his strength. So thanks again everyone and thank you God! ?"
4. A great definition of a Cursillo weekend.
"The purpose of going on a weekend is not to get more people active in the Cursillo movement. The purpose is to show you that God (Jesus) loves you & to fill you with the Holy Spirit when you to go back to your home, work, church, neighborhood, wherever you go, and help that environment change for the better, i.e., be a Christ-like environment."
5. This is Divisional playoff weekend for those of us interested in professional football. Two games on Saturday and two games on Sunday. I have already let Dee know that the games are on and to plan around them. Her team, Denver, plays Saturday at 8PM and my team, Green Bay, plays Sunday at 4:30PM.
