Sunday Sermon and Silly FaceTime With Grandma

24 Sep

Death is not the greatest loss in life. The greatest loss is what dies inside us while we live.

~Norman Cousins


Another drizzly dreary Sunday. We’ve had a lot of rain with flooding in many areas. I’ve been lucky with no water problems…so far. I’ve almost got the ark built in the backyard. I just need to start gathering the animals two by two. (A little Noah and Bible humor)

Today’s Gospel was the story of Jesus teaching and traveling with His disciples. They were arguing amongst themselves about who was the greatest.

Then he sat down, called the Twelve, and said to them,

“If anyone wishes to be first,

he shall be the last of all and the servant of all.”

Taking a child, he placed it in their midst,

and putting his arms around it, he said to them,

“Whoever receives one child such as this in my name, receives me;

and whoever receives me,

receives not me but the One who sent me.”

My take on it… those people who are so consumed with being first, being wealthy and powerful, being selfish and only thinking of themselves, those are just worldly things. Those people will be last at the time of final judgement. Those who shows kindness to the poor and helpless, those will come first.

When I got home from church, I was feeling drowsy and lazy. It was too drizzly to walk. I seriously debated whether to take a nap or go meet some friends for brunch. I chose brunch. We met at Harry’s On the Harbor in Adriatica. It was nice to see some folks from our Single Mingle group that I hadn’t seen in a long time because I usually don’t go to Sunday brunch and they don’t go to karaoke.

When I got home, I tried to be productive, doing some laundry and cleaning the kitchen, but the gloomy day made my eyes heavy. So, I took a little nap. It didn’t last long because my phone dinged with a text. My son asked if I wanted to FaceTime with baby Belle. Yay! Of course. That is always the highlight of my Sunday.

They went to the zoo today, and stopped for pizza. Belle was wearing more pizza than she consumed.

My blessings are countless. I see little Belle and see my sweet angel mother’s face.
