Dear Son

He turned 16 today

running at dawn
Awakening at 4:45am is telling a story about what’s important.

 

Last night’s talk about personal responsibility will help you remember that now is the time for generous self-reflection and exploration.

Make as many decent mistakes as you can before you move out on your own.

Life is what happens while we are busy with other plans.

Happy birthday Church

Happy birthday to the Church.

Yesterday snuck up on us. It wasn’t until we were sitting in the pew at 8:45am Mass that we realized it was Pentacost.

This is the day officially celebrated as the descent of the Holy Spirit onto the Apostles and other followers of Jesus.

Whatever you believe in, may it make total sense to you and leave no room for doubt.

Hope your birthday was extra special…

Where are the quotations about the other 364 days in our year?

 

It was indeed!

It was a day as special as every other day. Full of God’s greatest blessings. God doesn’t wait for our birthday (once a year) to give us access.

It was an amazing day.

Like yesterday and tomorrow.

No?

His only grandson was born eight months before his final breath.

Jack – a father, not the traveling bear – would have been 80 yesterday (May 19). He raised a son and daughter in Spring Grove, Pennsylvania.

His only grandson was born eight months before his final breath.

Weird how these moments in life come and go.

What emotions should we focus on?

What was lost?

What could have been?

Grateful we got anything at all?

Make the best of it.
