Ever Changing and Ever New

10 Jul

One would think that after 62 years of life, 36 years as a priest and 22 years as a pastor, my life would pretty much be set and in order. Yet life is still evolving, ever changing and ever new.

Since mom’s passing in 2006 my two sisters, Lee Ann and Peggy, send me a poem on the anniversary of my ordination. They are as bad as the ones my mother wrote over the years, and they make me smile as much: “Now it has been thirty six years. And your anniversary is music to our ears. If only we could bottle in a jar, Just how proud of you we are.”

May the good Lord bless you, guard you from evil, and guide you to eternity.
