we're NUTS for Jesus!
What an absolutely busy, beautiful, blessed weekend we had here as John and Mary made their First Holy Communion on Sunday.
Of course there was prep-work involved...aside from their spiritual formation that is. There was attire to be ironed and fluffed, hair to be primped and coifed and pinned, food for the masses, garage space to clean and make ready, yardwork...and on and on.
(That's why my nutty squirrels above look like orphans...they'll call me out on the neglect in years to come.)
Anyhow, what a joy to see these little innocents anxious to recieve Jesus for the first time. I couldn't help but get choked up as I watched my two, along with their classmates open their hands and hearts to Him. Just beautiful!
Thank you Fr. Rick!
God Bless Mary Ava and John August as they continue to grow in their faith, and love of the Lord!
