Scenes from my first Christmas

Yes, this is my First Christmas.....as a Deacon of course. Fr. Andrew reminded me and the entire congregation of that, along with the story ...

"What you hear whispered, proclaim on the housetops mt 10:27"

This morning I shook up my routine a bit, instead of beginning with morning prayers I got up took a look outside and then looked at the dogs and said "do you want to go for a walk?" If anyone of you know anything about dogs, it's that they go ballistic at the thought of going for a walk. We traveled together and headed to the park where other dog lovers gather on a Saturday morning. It had been some time and we were joined by three other people and four other dogs. Every one got along great, and it was a really great distraction.

I got back around 10 and sat down to do my morning prayers. I think the change was good, I was relaxed and the walk put me in a really great frame of mind. After the prayers I read the Scripture readings for the day. I ended with the Gospel of Matthew today and there it was....."What you hear whispered..." Flashback time! Didn't I just hear someone last week remind me to listen to that voice that whispers to you! On this journey that I'm on I have noticed that words or messages seem to keep popping into my life. I kinda of wonder if it's because I haven't quite caught on the first time.

Today's Gospel was so special, one that really tugs away at your heart. "You are worth more than many sparrows!" mt 10:31 a phrase that I have heard at least one hundred times in my life and yet did I really ever hear it or believe it? Today for probably the first time I heard it and really believed it. Like my relationship with my wife & my best friend, my relationship with Jesus is growing and becoming so important in my life. It truly is something I never want to let go of.

In one of our classes Deacon Greg mentioned that there were no coincidences. I obviously needed to change things up today and to get myself ready to hear the little whispers of Our Lord. Today for a least a few moments, I listened and it was great!

Bonsoir et Adieu mes Amis,
