Summer Holiday

Yours truly is going away with the kids for a few days.  What you'll see in my absence will be re-runs.  Comment moderation will be on.  However, I may not be able to publish comments until my return.  We'll see what happens.

The temperature at the ballpark just dropped 10 degrees this past  hour ( from 100 to 90) so maybe some relief is in sight.  I thought I was going to lose Rebecca at Mass this morning.  I packed some frozen wash cloths in my handbag and we used them a few times to keep from fainting.  The walk home was even worse.  Thank God for cold lemonade.  It revived us both.  I saw this quote the other day and thought it really does ring true.

Ah, summer, what power you have to make us suffer and like it - (Russell Baker)

Hopefully, we don't squander the opportunity to offer it up.  Funny, I rarely find anything in winter that makes me think so much of Purgatory as the heat and humidity of July do.

Have a blessed week!

Comments which reflect true Christian charity are always welcome. Comments which attack the Pope, the Church, priests or other bloggers will go in the dustbin, especially if they are anonymous. Thank you and God Bless you!
