Sunday: Sermons, Snug, Sunshine and Swans

24 Feb

Her tongue will not obey her heart, nor can Her heart inform her tongue–the swan’s down-feather That stands upon the swell at full of tide, And neither way inclines.
-William Shakespeare
Seventh Sunday in Ordinary Time: The Gospel is taken from St. Matthew (5:38-48). Jesus said to his disciples: “You have heard that it was said, An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth. But I say to you, offer no resistance to one who is evil. When someone strikes you on your right cheek, turn the other one as well. If anyone wants to go to law with you over your tunic, hand over your cloak as well.

That was today’s gospel and sermon. I don’t claim to be the most devout person in the world, but I thought, and I thought, and I contemplated the sermon, and all I could come up with is, “Easier said than done.” I say no more on the subject,

After Mass, I ventured over to the Square and had the most yummy yogurt parfait at Snug. I ran into Laura Bartlett and coincidentally it was her birthday. Happy birthday, Laura.


She’s not only one of the “Four Funny Females,” comedy group, but she’s cute a s a button.

It was such a sunny sensational day, that I decided to walk around the Square. Miss Elizabeth over at Sweet Spot bakery was working on a wedding cake. Of course, I just make myself at home, walk into the back room, and visit with the talented bakers.

I always try to cram in as many activities into a fabulous sunny day as humanly possible, so I called my friend Chris. We met at Towne Lake park and went for a long walk and talk around the lake. Everyone was put enjoying the day, especially the ducks and swans who appreciated the bread and treats the visitors shared.

Not wanting to see the day end, when I finally arrived back home around 5:30pm, I went out for a brisk walk around the neighborhood before the sun sank slowly in the western sky. (The walk was especially brisk because my neighbor came out to warn me that he saw a couple of bobcats traipsing around.)

Are you thoroughly exhausted just from hearing about my busy day? Yep, me too! Happy Sunday, y’all!
