How Can You Tell?

The church marriage video only captured same-sex marriages

Magic The gathering card game
Yesterday afternoon we played Magic: The Gathering card game.

 

At 8:45AM Mass yesterday, Chapin and i sat a few rows back from the front and center. We normally sit in the last row, far left.

Five minutes before Mass began, the lights dimmed with no announcement and a five-minute Marriage video began playing on the large wall.

The church marriage video only captured same-sex marriages.

Afterward, i leaned over and whispered to Chapin, “There were only same-sex couples.”

Can you imagine Jesus telling two people (of any combination) who love each other they shouldn’t spend their lives together in an official (commitment) union?

Seriously.

Can you?

Life is not a dress rehearsal, live like you mean it.

In the video above the author and the artist are different.

The mashup of the two is special.

Jimmy Carter believes Jesus would approve of Gay Marriage

 

Jimmy Carter believes Jesus would approve of Gay Marriage.

Why?

Because Jimmy…”believes Jesus would encourage any love affair that was honest and sincere and was not damaging to anyone else. And i don’t see that Gay marriage damages anyone else.”

There’s an outward hate aimed at our LBGT community.

And when i say hate, it is a blatant hatred, proliferated mainly through social media channels.

How hatred for someone else, for any reason, ever became part of the Bible is beyond my comprehension.

Biggest questions? What is the secret to a marriage remaining intact?

 

In the future, marriage is likely to be considered an option rather than a traditional way of life.

Time will tell won’t it?

And speaking of telling… less than half of all marriages survive.

Less than half the people who got married are still married to the same person.

It is what it is.

What Is Love?

The Ride Is For Life
The Ride Is For Life

“Love is a temporary madness. It erupts like an earthquake and then subsides. And when it subsides you have to make a decision. You have to work out whether your roots have become so entwined together that it is inconceivable that you should ever part. Because this is what love is. Love is not breathlessness, it is not excitement, it is not the promulgation of promises of eternal passion. That is just being “in love” which any of us can convince ourselves we are. Love itself is what is left over when being in love has burned away, and this is both an art and a fortunate accident. Your mother and I had it, we had roots that grew towards each other underground, and when all the pretty blossom had fallen from our branches we found that we were one tree and not two.”

-St. Augustine

How does St Augustine’s definition compare with your definition of Love?

Life and love are never easy. Everything requires work. Hard work.

Today’s a new day, a fresh opportunity. Do what you do – with Love.

Or, you could opt to do the opposite. But don’t complain if your results are not what you hope or wish for.

Hard work is the only way.
