random thoughts

Random things all in one post.

For where your treasure is, there also will your heart be. 

I have that verse on the wall in my classroom (among others).  Not in plain view, of course.  Someone might be offended.  But where I can see it.  That was part of today's gospel.  We would do well to examine our motives for doing things, Father said.  They either come from love or from selfishness.   As a final thought, Father added that what you do in secret - when no one else is around - is a good indicator of where your treasure is.

My oldest child came with me to Mass this morning.  I think we were the youngest two people in the church.  Seriously.   And I am not young.

Leaving with my sister-in-law to go on a retreat this weekend.  Perhaps I'll have something to update on that when we get back.  Very much looking forward to it!

A few random pictures - just because the blog looks better with pictures.  I'm sort of envious of some people's blogs with beautiful pictures.  Oh well....

A picture of the crepe myrtle in my back yard.  Surely there are others with more flowers and prettier colors, but this is mine.  It adds beauty all the same.  

And a picture of some potential cantaloupes in my garden.
