This weekend in church Joe Boyd talked about us being together as a community, pulling each other through things, and learning from one another. He told the story of the girls playing softball where the defense carried the girl who hit a home run over the fence but torn her ACL and wasn’t able to run all the bases. I watched the video on YouTube and it was fantastic sportsmenship of them to do that for her. Joe also took a look at a couple of stories in Mark and how the diciples learned from Jesus.
But the most memoriable thing for me on Sunday was communion. Not only did we take communion as a community at VCC but about that very same time Clare was recieving her first communion at a Catholic Church outside of Sunman, IN. Chris and I chose to not attended the mass for personal reason but were going out later in the day to have lunch and celebrate with Clare at her home. Little did we know what God had planned for us as a family to take communion at the same time and to bless us in such a special way.
So Clare, May 4, 2008 was a very special day and we were glad we could share in it. Thank you so much God for such blessings in our lives.
