Sunday Sermon and a Special Birthday

6 Dec

May all your wishes come true

And may all your days be bright

Only health and happiness

With sweet dreams throughout the night.



Today, a special little girl celebrated her birthday. We started out with morning hugs and kisses and breakfast. Then, we went to morning Mass at St. Norbert and Our Lady of the Brook. It was a drizzly chilly day, but when it’s your birthday, and you’re a little girl, it’s a lovely exciting day.

Today’s Gospel tells about John the Baptist proclaiming the arrival of the Lord and salvation of man…

Gospel, Luke 3:1-6

1 In the fifteenth year of Tiberius Caesar’s reign, when Pontius Pilate was governor of Judaea, Herod tetrarch of Galilee, his brother Philip tetrarch of the territories of Ituraea and Trachonitis, Lysanias tetrarch of Abilene,2 and while the high-priesthood was held by Annas and Caiaphas, the word of God came to John the son of Zechariah, in the desert. He went through the whole Jordan area proclaiming a baptism of repentance for the forgiveness of sins, as it is written in the book of the sayings of Isaiah the prophet: A voice of one that cries in the desert: Prepare a way for the Lord, make his paths straight! Let every valley be filled in, every mountain and hill be levelled, winding ways be straightened and rough roads made smooth,6 and all humanity will see the salvation of God.

My take on it… when someone tells you get ready, something great is about to happen, perhaps it’s a good idea to listen.


Now, to the birthday celebration. This sweet princess had a birthday today, and she has been looking forward to this for weeks. After church we went to World Market so she could pick out a special toy for her birthday. Then, we came home, had lunch, played while little sister took her nap, then we started the celebration.

Her mommy made this awesome unicorn cake from scratch, and made the yummy icing and decorated it with all the fancy colors. So cute!

Happy birthday, Princess. Sweet dreams.

Happy Sunday, my friends.
