1 hour, 15 minutes,
goes by fast,
at the bookstore with Grandma,
walking and looking,
until we found a book we liked,
to sit and waste time,
and look at,
We counted 144 Popes,
and other awesome Catholic stuff,
and then time was up.
We waited to go home,
after a wonderful day,
thanks be to God.
I love Paradoxes, they give me hope. Yesterday we celebrated the Feast of Pentacost, the birthday of the Catholic Church, when the Holy Spirit was descended upon the apostles and they all began speaking in different tongues. Fr. Roy mentioned in his sermon on Sunday, the Holy Spirit is a mysterious energy that is at work in us that could take a lifetime to fully appreciate. It is the spirit that helps us see the dark places in our hearts and minds in the light.
The Holy Spirit made me think of a Paradox the other day, Everyday is another chance to do better. Then I read, Gretchin Rubin's blog and she was talking about Paradoxes. Her blog made me think about other Paradoxes so I made a list of a few below."The days are long, the years are short." - From Gretchin Rubin in The Happiness-Project. Check out her video at the website.
- The more things change, the more they stay the same.
- Practice makes perfect, but nobody's perfect.
What Paradoxes have you heard of? Which ones are your favorite? Feel free to list them in the comment space below. Thanks and God bless you. Happy Monday!
