It actually was funny seeing the two of us working together. I'm old enough to be his father, and we both approached this project on two different plains. He is taking his notes on an Ipad and I'm doing it the old fashioned way, pen and paper. It was a mixture that is working for the two of us and I feel we are well on our way.
Just before wrapping up I shared with him that I would love to add a new dimension to our parish. Our pastor Fr. Marc stated to me at his last meeting that he wants to add something new to the parish. I showed him the Rite of blessing of the unborn. Not to be outdone by my junior partner, I had my Kindle fire along with me to show him the Rite.
Tonight I'm off to a local MMA bout in my town! I'm not really a fan of this, but my son wants to go and I want to share something with him. Regardless of what happens, the fact that we are together can only produce something special.
Today and every day I ask the Lord to open my eyes so that I may see clearly all the gifts and blessings I have received and most of all see His presence in everyone I meet!
Bonjour et Adieu mes Amis!
PS! Oh, and you probably thought how did this posting tie in with what happened. This week a dear friend happened to be in the area hiking and stopped by to see me. Unfortunately I had already left for the day. Doug, sorry I missed you, but I'll always remember you!
