MISSIONARY JOURNAL – HANGIN WITH THE GUYS

12-5-09 continued

After Mass was supper and visiting. After a delicious meal and lots of good conversation time, I headed back home. Thursday night I got to attend the Matthew Kelly advent mission at Fatima. He is a nationally/internationally

acclaimed motivational speaker who is also Catholic. Introduced to him by way of Ms. Laura, I had already bought his books and read most of them, so I knew I’d enjoy his talk (which I did). Afterwards, I went to a meet and greet w/Matthew Kelly in the parish hall. Got a chance to meet him and talk with him and get his autograph and take a picture with him. He’s a really nice and laid back, down to earth guy.

Today was a good day too, mainly b/c of stuff that happened after work. The best part was getting to go to Mass after work and receive Jesus in the Eucharist. Needed that grace and blessing for sure… Afterwards I picked up Joe Lyons and Chris Diesi. We met up at Hub City Diner with Paul Lejeune and Cody Bertrand and enjoyed hangin with the guys. We were all in a goofy mood, or we must have been feeding off each other’s energy, because it was the most fun and laughing I’ve had at a meal in quite some time. I was a little disappointed though that Dottie didn’t get to come. I wanted to hang out with her and spend some time together b/c we don’t do enough of that. I called her and texted her today, and even stopped by her house and couldn’t get in touch with her… 😦 I pray Lord that you help me continue to love her and that my missionary zeal would help me to try to visit with her and minister to her. So after the meal, we moseyed on over to Wisdom because some of the FMC missionaries were there playing music and promoting the Ananias CD they had just finished.
