Yesterday was one of those days that is totally great from start to finish! The day began with a trip down to Nina and Jamie's house. I road down with Anna, Kelli, and baby Madison. Nina made a fantastic meal of bake barbecue chicken, hot dogs, steamed vegetables, and corn on the cob. Anna brought coleslaw and eclair cake. Jamie's mom and grandma were there. Sam and Harold came a little later because they went fishing in the morning. We all had a great time eating and visiting. We had to leave earlier than I would have liked because I had to head back to Alma for 4:30 Mass.
After Mass, Harold, Anna, and I headed to Mt. Pleasant for the fireworks display. We went to Kohl's on the way to get Harold some shirts and pants for Alaska. I bought an outfit too, and some other things I need for the trip.
We met Sam, Kelli, and baby, and Kelli's parents Gary and Jan in the big field south of the casino. It was fabulous. We could see 3 different fireworks shows.
Word of the day:
Fourteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time
Today the Church celebrates : St. Anthony Mary Zaccaria, Priest (1502-1539)
Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Mark 6:1-6.
He departed from there and came to his native place, accompanied by his disciples. When the sabbath came he began to teach in the synagogue, and many who heard him were astonished. They said, "Where did this man get all this? What kind of wisdom has been given him? What mighty deeds are wrought by his hands! Is he not the carpenter, the son of Mary, and the brother of James and Joses and Judas and Simon? And are not his sisters here with us?" And they took offense at him. Jesus said to them, "A prophet is not without honor except in his native place and among his own kin and in his own house." So he was not able to perform any mighty deed there, apart from curing a few sick people by laying his hands on them. He was amazed at their lack of faith. He went around to the villages in the vicinity teaching.
