"Deep in my heart, I know there’s no promise I’ll be free from trouble in this life. In fact, I’m usually either getting out of trouble, currently in trouble, or about to meet trouble around the next corner."...... I hope you'll stick around for my "Lucille Ball/Gracie Allen" adventures. It promises to be a wild ride.
It’s Thursday again – and we all know what that means!
Here is this week’s question.
Truth? or Dare?
If you could go back in time, five to ten years and give yourself advice, what would it be?
I'll be posting my answer next week because
I want every one to come up with their answer spontaneously
and not be guided by my answer. I cannot wait to hear your answers!
Thank you all for participating. I will be doing this every Thursday so I
hope you’ll all be back.
My answer to last week’s question “Are you an active participant in Lent? Is there nything you try to do differently at this time of the year that you might not ordinarily do any other time of the year? Is there anything you would like to share about your feelings for Lent?"
Personally, during Lent, I try to do more for others than I might normally venture out to do. I am an introvert, so I have a difficult time stepping up. I also attend the Way of the Cross each Friday during Lent and this year our Priest made Holy Week very memorable - both because of the activities and the drama/stress he inadvertently caused trying to get all the music ministers to participate together (too many Chiefs and too many styles.)
The Priest that is serving our parish this year made the week come alive. Wednesday evening was the Way of the Cross. He had people pretend to be the different characters in Jesus' life and they each read a part for each station. It was moving and brought you into Jesus' life.
The Thursday evening services include the washing of the feet. In years past, the priests have read the gospel and then done the washing. This year, while the Deacon read the gospel, the priest acted it out. It was also quite moving.
