Today is the 22nd anniversary of my ordination as a priest.
On my calendar for today I'd written WORK ON TAXES. Today was to be unshaven, t-shirted, barefoot and over-caffeinated as I pulled together papers.
Instead, I've been emailing back and forth with key parish leaders, who are sending energetic thoughts about an upcoming planning retreat.
Then, I got a call from a local family needing a visit for a loved one who is probably in her last days for this life (but a jewel in God's treasure in the next).
Then, an invitation for my wife and me to have KFC and play cards with a special needs parishioner - an adult woman who is our smiliest acolyte at the altar.
Now, I'm sharing this with you on the blog.
God's got a theme going on here...
