It’s been a busy and fulfilling week. We celebrated my wife’s birthday yesterday with dinner at one of her favorite local restaraunts. We went to the Bistro II in nearby Cuba, New York. Wednesday evening I spent at Mt. Irenaeus. I was part of the ministry team that presented the first “Evening of Re-Creation” for the summer of 2006. The evenings are special times that begin with Mass followed by a dish-to-pass supper and and evening of reflection. The theme of the evening was, “In the Beginning was the Word.” There were about 50 people there and we all enjoyed our time together. There is a poster at Mt. Irenaeus that reads, “Hungry for God and Good Food.” It was my hunger for both that led me to Mt. Irenaeus a half dozen years ago. Wednesday was a chance to share that food with others. It is better to give than to receive.
You gotta dance like nobody’s watching,
dream like you will live forever,
live like you’re going to die tomorrow,
and love like it’s never going to hurt.
