Finally! A break in the insane schedule that had become my life for the last two and a half years.
Yes, I graduated!!! Yay! I am now completely, 100% “a minister”.
And, fittingly enough, my ministry begins today, on St. Stephen’s Day. (St. Stephen being the Patron Saint of deacons and all those who are called to serve God.) Do not feel that you need to follow my ministry to hang out here in Marilyn’s Room, but you can if you want to!
I had a great Christmas, although it was a very quiet one. (And I did spend a lot of it wondering what next Christmas will be like when I am finally back East, among all my friends.) I heard from quite a lot of those friends yesterday, and my sister also stopped in for a visit, which was so nice but too short.
I am off now to visit with a friend who is in town from a far away Western state! So, really, I am just passing through the blog to let you know that I have returned.
[While “Art Thou Weary” is the traditional hymn for St. Stephen, I also really love the carol “Good King Wenceslas” and especially as sung by the Irish Rovers, so here you go!!] Thanks for visiting, gang! See ya super soon!
