the sermon for transformation sunday is here.
and i want to say thank you to everyone for the prayers and cyber hugs. the prince is doing well, he's probably doing better than any of the rest of us. the princess kitty is a wonderful big sister and we are doing our best to continue to keep her life normal and routine. she went to a friend's birthday party today at the yMca and had a blast. the prince isn't hurting in a traditional sense. it's just that we don't know the extent of the damage that has been done to him (we may never know.)
hubby and i are angry with no place to really direct our anger and that just makes us angrier. but we are in this together and that makes all the difference. and our faith keeps us going, though we both feel off our game when it comes to being pastors.
this wednesday is the start of the season of Lent. i typically love these times in the church calendar before religious holidays that have been secularized. i begin to refocus and that refreshes me (even though they are also the busiest times of the year for me.) traditionally people give something up for lent, but i think this year i will do my best to add something to my day as a personal form of piety.
and it will be mine and personal... something i may or may not share here at some point. but i know it will begin with thankfulness. thankfulness for the support of family and friends and churchmembers and for this cyber-community.
may God bless you as you have all been a blessing to me.
God's peace y'all.
