time for a second honeymoon

1 Jul

Today is July 1, 2014.

It is the first day of my last year at St. Andrew, and the first day of my final year until retirement from parish administration.

I have been at St. Andrew for thirteen years. It will be fourteen years at my retirement, one year from now.

July 1st of next year will be a new first for me, indeed.

I have been married for 39 years to my spouse, the Church. I was engaged at the age of 16 (when I entered the seminary).

Next year when we reach 40 years, it will be time for a second honeymoon.
