Sunday Sermon and Some Other Stuff

8 Mar

“Is all anger sin? No, but some of it is. Even God Himself has righteous anger against sin, injustice, rebellion and pettiness.”

Joyce Meyer

Sunday is always a special day for me. A day to count my blessings and the wonderful people in my life. (You know who you are.) Also, a good day to watch Mass in my pajamas.

Gospel, John 2:13-25

Today’s Gospel was the story of Jesus going to the Temple in Jerusalem where He found people selling animals and doves, and there were money changers. Jesus was upset, making a whip and chasing out the offenders saying, “Take all this out of here and stop using my Father’s house as a market.”

“During his stay in Jerusalem for the feast of the Passover many believed in his name when they saw the signs that he did, but Jesus knew all people and did not trust himself to them; he never needed evidence about anyone; he could tell what someone had within.”

My take on it… we never think that getting angry is justifiable, but even Jesus got angry on occasion. People tell you, don’t get mad, always forgive, or turn the other cheek. Some things are just not acceptable or forgivable. ( I’ve said this on many occasions.)

A penny for your thoughts…

I was doing laundry today, and there at the bottom of the washer , I found a lucky penny. Now, you’re probably thinking that this is not so unusual. It may have been in a pocket of a shirt or pants. But, I was washing sheets and pillow cases. Weird, right? How did that penny get in there? Perhaps a sign. Lucky me.

And as always, the highlight of my evening, a little FaceTime with the cutest little faces in the whole wide world.

Lucky Gamma! ❤️❤️

    Man are those little girls growing fast. Seems like the baby was a newborn yesterday!

      I know, right? They are two and four. The little one is just about as tall as her big sister now. I had a chance to drive up and see them next week with a friend who is driving up to Chicago to visit her mother, but my son is being very cautious with the girls. They just bought an older single family house that doesn’t have a guest room yet. Construction under way in the basement. He said I could visit, but I would have to stay at a hotel and visit after the girls came home from daycare, and still distance. I said I’ll just wait till the basement is done with the guest room and I can hug my girls. Hopefully soon. I hope you are doing well and staying healthy. I get my second vaccine on Friday. Take care. 🙏
