“One should not attend even the end of the world without a good breakfast.”
― Robert A. Heinlein
A little chilly this morning, a gloomy grey sky, but it’s Sunday. Sunday is always a good day. I start off with a call to Mom on my way to church. Hugs, saying hello, and greeting before Mass. Today, the Knights of Columbus had a pancake breakfast after 9 o’clock Mass.
Today’s Gospel was the story of Jesus telling the disciples that during the days of Noah, no one knew when the flood was coming. So now, we need to be aware, because we don’t know when the Lord will come. My take on it…just like the old Boy Scout motto, “Always be prepared.” If you live a good life every day, well, you have nothing to fear if today is your last.
Gospel MT 24:37-44
Therefore, stay awake!
For you do not know on which day your Lord will come.
Be sure of this: if the master of the house
had known the hour of night when the thief was coming,
he would have stayed awake
and not let his house be broken into.
So too, you also must be prepared,
for at an hour you do not expect, the Son of Man will come.”
After Mass, I went over to the pancake breakfast and sat with Virginia and Joe. Later, Mary and Pat joined us. The Knights always work hard to prepare a nice breakfast.
After church, I stopped at the store to pick up some essentials, i.e… Decadent fudge tracks chocolate ice cream. Oh man…that stuff is wonderful. There’s this rule that I have. To allow for the melting and expansion of the ice cream that occurred on the way home, I’m forced to skim a little off the top before I put it in the freezer. It’s a physics thing.
