Sunday Sermon: Hit The “NAIL” Right On The Head

3 Nov

“Mostly it is loss which teaches us about the worth of things.”
― Arthur Schopenhauer, Parerga and Paralipomena
Today is All Souls Day, the day we pray for all those who have passed away. Father had an interesting homily after the Gospel reading. He said that sometimes we wait too long to tell people we love them or forgive those who have hurt us. Often times, we regret not visiting, spending time, saying “I love you,” or mending those fences. Then someone passes away, and it’s too late.

I always tell my family, loved ones, and friends how I feel, and they know how much I love them. That I can do. But, when Father said we need to mend fences and forgive those who have hurt us, I thought he was talking directly to me. He hit the nail right on the head. That I can’t do! Sorry, Father.

But, I’ll keep praying…and maybe someday…then again…maybe not.

Well, besides being November 2nd, it was Daylight Saving Time, and we had to turn the clocks back an hour. Ah…an extra hour of sleep, right? Not! How many of you actually slept longer? Not me. So, I woke up early and went for an early walk before church. It was COLD out! The sky was gloomy, but the sun tried to sneak out from the clouds in a spooky kinda fascinating hazy glow. Cool!

Oh yes! Speaking of hitting the NAIL right on the head, you know how I pick up stray construction nails on my walks? Well, this week was the nailpalooza of them all. Here is what I found just this week. My sister suggested that I save them, as I normally toss them in the construction bins. This way I can see how many I find. Maybe I’ll make a craft project with them.

Yep! I “nailed it” this week.
