Sunday Sermon and Other Stuff

5 Mar

“It’s not how much we give but how much love we put into giving.”

Mother Teresa


A cloudy, murky, misty Sunday morning. But,the gloom disappears the minute I get to the door of St. Gabriel’s. I was met by smiles and hugs from Mary and Jerry, already greeting at the door. Then, saying good morning to hundreds of people, hugs, laughter, high-fives from little guys. It doesn’t get better than that. A great way to start my day.

I always have a Matchbox car for Liam, and a little toy or trinket for Avery. Today, I had a little blue knitted purse for her. I totally forgot to put a lucky coin inside, so I caught her after Mass and gave her a shiny quarter. She was thrilled. You would have thought I gave her a million dollars. So cute!

I just love sharing little treasures with the children. At one time, they were little strangers. Today, they are like family. These gifts are small inexpensive gestures, smiles and hugs cost nothing, but all these things mean so much to others. They mean even more to me. I have found that the more I share, the more I am blessed. I love it!

“It’s not how much we give but how much love we put into giving.”

Mother Teresa

The Gospel today was about the Samaritan woman at the well. She didn’t think she was worthy to draw water from the well for Jesus when he asked for water, but He told her that He was offering a different water. Eternal life.

My take on it… God doesn’t discriminate gender, color, region, or faith. All are welcome to share, to learn, to grow and believe.

It was a good Sunday. I grabbed my umbrella and took a long walk. Even the rain couldn’t dampen my spirits.
