Yes that is my Moo-Moo, first time as altar server. I am so proud he has taken on the responsibility and that he is learning about taking on a role of care and service within the community. Whether it be in the church, in the family or just in the wider community, I think it is soo important that I teach my children to take care of people and offer support and service to those that need it. Taking on a role like altar server just helps give the opportunity to put that in practice.
Father Bonaventure actually really helped my in his sermon on Saturday, he touched on a point that is something I struggle with on a day to day basis. Without prattling on I will pass on to you his gem of truth as I am sure this will make a lot of sense to alot of us no matter what your faith or convictions...
"When you win the rat race, you are still a rat."
Think I am ready to take 5 minutes out and have some time for peace and gratitude, how 'bout you?
Now on to something a bit lighter...
Take care of each other (and yourself),
see you soon.
