After a couple of weeks' hiatus, I'm happy to be joining the fine-looking ladies of FLAP!
Hay fever has hit our family BIG TIME. Mostly, sneezing, runny noses and dry coughs, but I'm sporting some wicked dragon eyes despite my allergy eye drops and meds. Also, allergies make everyone -- how do I say this? -- pissy.
So, today's gospel was soothing balm to my ears: the Greatest Commandment. LOVE.
And, I hissed, "are you listening???" at my kids during our pastor's homily when he pointed out that even though Judas betrayed Jesus, and Jesus KNEW BEFOREHAND that he would, Jesus still chose to love Judas. So, even when we know someone will hurt us or has hurt us, we should still choose to love that person. And, for the bonus round, he brought up an interesting thought to ponder: why, when someone says to you "I love that song!" or "I love ice cream!" do we smile and nod , but when someone says to us "I love Jesus!" do we become uncomfortable?
