My friend Roy was telling me that he had gone to the Eagles Club last evening for their St Paddy’s Day Dinner. He said that there were generous portions of corned beef and cabbage. Yea, generous portions, I haven’t heard that phrase in a long time but it is a good one.
I just got back from my bible class and we were discussing the story about Jesus saying that it was harder for the rich man to get into the Kingdom than to get a camel through the eye of the needle. And I hope that we the trusty pilgrims that we are realize how lucky we are generally and that generous portions are available to us. We can do quite well in this life without getting obsessed with the accumulation of things and wealth. Going down the trail with our “light backpack” and gratitude in our hearts is still the way that we see to best navigate the world.
We are lucky that we have been exposed to the lessons that we have. Of course we think that the whole world would be better off if we all went on pilgrimage for a bit in our lives. It is fortunate for us that we had the chance when we did.
Time to go. The beautiful sun is out and I still have plenty of clean up to do outside. Later y’all loves, Felipé.
