Sunday Sermon and Other Stuff:) Toot Toot

29 Aug

“If you toot your own horn all the time, people tend to look the other way. If many trumpets sound as you humbly enter the room, everyone stops to honor you.”

~ Toni Armenta Andrukaitis

“Nothing of real worth can ever be bought. Love, friendship, honour, valour, respect. All these things have to be earned.” 

― David Gemmell

A warm summer Texas day, but it’s always nice to start off with hugging my friend Mary at St. Gabriel before we greet at 9 o’clock Mass, then  greeting everyone with a smile as they enter.

Today’s Gospel was about Jesus telling the parable of the visitor at a wedding feast. You should not take a place of honor nearest the host, as he may have that place reserved for someone else, and you will be emarrassed when asked to move. If you are humble, and sit with the common folk at the far end of the table, you will be honored if you are asked to come to sit nearer the host.

Luke 14

“For every one who exalts himself will be humbled,

but the one who humbles himself will be exalted.” 

My take on it… “If you toot your own horn all the time, people tend to look the other way. If many trumpets sound as you humbly enter the room, everyone stops to honor you.” Wow! That’s pretty profound! Did I just say that? The moral of the story…don’t toot your own horn.
After Mass, I stopped to have an iced tea with Mr. Jerry. Then, off to Sprouts, oh no, dark chocolate almonds on sale $4.99 a lb and avocados 2 for $1. About half a pound of the almonds were consumed on the way home. We wouldn’t want them to melt, would we?

After I changed, I walked over to Mr. Mike’s and I took Bella for a quick walk in the park, dropped her off, then walked to the far side of the subdivision. Mr. Larry and Miss Sandy were sitting in the garage and said, “Where ya been? We’ve been waiting for ya.” I strolled over to their fridge and grabbed a Pepsi and sat down. I told them I wasn’t  having a beer this time. Last Sunday, I zigzagged all the way home.


My son Joe called and we had a nice long Sunday chat, so all is good in my world. Now, to figure out what to have for dinner. Either chocolate almonds or something with avocado, or maybe both.

 Hope you are having a great Sunday.

    You look marvelous in yellow. You must have worked off those chocolates in your walking. They don’t show! 🙂
