Time was the sacrifice today. Fortunately, I was sacrificing Time so that I could be with Mama and my oldest son while at the same time learning about the Church and gaining some certification in my qualifications to teach others about the faith.

Before I forget, I just want to mention that I am discovering that my sacrifices are beneficial to everyone – not the least being me. So, in a sense, I could promote Sacrificing for one’s Marriage because it benefits you. Hmmm… I have to think about that for a while. Don’t want to promote the self-serving side…

So we (Mama and The Heir Apparent) attended the first of five six-hour classes called “Basic Teachings of the Catholic Faith” at our Parish. It was nice, because it was a rare moment where Mama, Kristofer or I were NOT the ones doing the teaching!

The class ran from 9AM to 3PM and, Mama being the coordinator of this Diocesan program in our deanery I had to get her to the Church an hour early while I ran around and got the other Boyz to a friend’s house. We had a good time, learned a lot, mixed it up on some social issues with the instructor (he asked us to) and then closed down the place in time to go get the younger ones and back up to the Church so that the two oldest could serve at the altar during Mass.


It was a great day. Almost no sacrifice at all…though I would have done the same thing if it was a College Football Saturday!

Even scarier was dragging the vacuum back over the same strip and hearing the same thing, as more got pulled...
