The power in the reading

The power in the reading is in the manner in which you read. – Fr.Hunt, 77 years young

Yeah, yeah, everyone knows that.

Ok then, why doesn’t everyone read like they know it?

Father Hunt was a guest speaker during a half-day Lector training session i attended a few years back.

On April Fool’s Day 2009, jeff noel began writing five daily, differently-themed blogs (on five different sites). It was to be a 100-day self-imposed “writer’s bootcamp”, in preparation for writing his first book. He hasn’t missed a single day since.

It’s the little things, right?

It’s the little things, right?

Last night there were four of us remaining. The other 40 had left.

i had both hands full as i was leaving and asked for the final time, “Is there anything i can help with?”

No, we’re fine, we’ve got everything.

After the long walk to the car, i packed into the trunk what i had carried. Instead of unlocking the car to drive home, i went back upstairs and said, “i don’t know what i was thinking when i offered to help with both hands full. But now i have two empty hands, what do you need help with?”

i told them i’m always reminding our son, “If you help me do this it will get done quickly.”

It felt good to help them carry boxes to their cars.

Had i not done such a simple gesture, i would have thought about the missed opportunity for far too long.

Be careful that you don’t commit the same error

Disney Keynote Motivational Speaker
Patience and timing are learned skills.

 

At the close of the young Priest’s homily (sermon) yesterday morning, i leaned over and whispered to our Son (15), “He rushed the punchline”.

Note to self: Be careful that you don’t commit the same error. Stick the landing as it were.
