Dear younger me

Lake McDonald
Pairing up is part of nature’s grand design. Pairing allows for the ebb and flow of love.

 

Dear younger me,

Interestingly enough, the insidious aching you feel in your heart will take 40 years to finally get your attention as “unacceptable”. You’ll come to the realization that Nature and God are the same thing and that your lifelong love of Nature was preparing you for this revelation.

You’ll also discover the meaning of life – to love and be loved.

When you finally finish RCIA, you’ll be well prepared to “burn the ships” on your former self – the self that wasn’t fully conscious, wasn’t consciously grateful for every minute of every day.

He says it’s getting harder to be honest

Sunday 6pm Mass Palm Sunday
Youth Ministry begins after the 6pm Mass on Sundays.

 

He is not a fan of Youth Ministry. At all.

We talked about it yesterday at dinner. Then we drove for another Sunday night session.

Suggested that he go into the session pretending he’s going to High School – the focus being on making friends, being friendly, being accepting, having fun.

Let go of feeling like “religion” is the goal.

In 1984, at the ripe age of 25, jeff noel thought he had the perfect plan. noel (married in ’83) would relocate his wife and all their belongs to Orlando and begin their Disney career. They’d buy a “lower cost mobile home” and live there until they could afford a house. noel never factored in land/lot rental. This made the price the same as a house mortgage. Rut roe.

Just Call

That’s all that has do be done. Just pick up the phone and call. So why haven’t I?

Probably the same reason they haven’t done it.

So who’s right? Is there even a right or wrong? Seems irrelevant. So who’s going to make the first move?

Ever feel like this scenario? Any advice to people (me) who have a challenging habit of not staying in touch?
