For instance, this morning I went to church and my umbrella was in my car - good place for it. This is was a recap of my week. And, all in all, I'm soaked.
The messages from church today were great.
The first is for those Catholic haters out there - Love everyone, especially anyone who believes Christ died for our sins, stop worrying about how we pray and the intricacies between the various segments of Christian Beliefs, love your fellow person and learn to forgive and accept.
Second - Without Good Friday, Easter would never have occurred. Suffering leads us to resurrection. This message hit pretty close to home figuratively and literally.
Third - Bear Witness (hence my song choice - Holy Calamity (Bear Witness Il) ).
Then there is the one thing that will always affect me and how I live, I quite haven't been able to bring it to confession but think I may very soon. I realized today that each time I go to church and see the families with their beautiful children it's a small punishment. I attend mass by myself to punish myself. I think I'm by myself to punish myself. The penance has gone on long enough and it's time for me to accept God's forgiveness and move on.
On a lighter note, signs are given to us daily and we shouldn't fight them...
After mass I went to the gym. I realized I only packed one shoe. Okay, I'll just not run and do the bike/stairstepper with the cheap-o target shoes. Then I realized I didn't have my lock... Since it's Sunday I'll trust that people won't steal... Then I got out and thought I'd attempt a bike - it didn't work. I moved to the tall stair walker machine and it was broke. I jumped up on the top step and damn near fell on my face, it slid 4 ft in a second. I was not meant to work out today. Hopefully when the rain stops everything else will brighten up too...
