"Never be in a hurry; do everything quietly and in a calm spirit. Do not lose your inner peace for anything whatsoever, even if your whole world seems upset." Saint Francis De Sales

Sunday Musing

Sundays are relaxing days that we enjoy with our family and friends. The day starts with early morning Mass. Some Sundays we are hospitality ministers, handing out the order of worship, seating parishioners and guests and carrying the cross. Dee and I work on the Welcome Desk, greeting those who wish to become part of our parish. We also help in other ministries as the need arises.

There is a group of us that go to Panara Bread for coffee and baked goods. The number who attend varies and it is not unusual to have family members show up. The usual seating arrangements are the men in one area and the ladies in another. The topics that go on in the men's section varies from sports to religion. They are interesting, thought provoking and humorous. A subject for another blog.

Dee, my beautiful Italian wife, is an excellent cook and Sunday pasta is a tradition that was handed down by her Mom. The dinner can be interesting when everyone shows up. I call it “controlled chaos.” I usually handle the clean up since Dee does all the preparation. This part is usually humorous because I have a particular way of washing the dishes, pots and pans. Dee is kind enough to consent to my organizational idiosyncrasies. Occasionally we have some of our friends over if our son’s and their families are unavailable. They enjoy it just as much and always request that Dee bring sauce when we all vacation at the beach.
