Aloha Friday 11/26/03

Happy Aloha Friday, Happy Thanks Giving, and Happy Days!
I’m sending this out Wednesday because I won’t be in the office Thursday and will be in and out Friday. We were supposed to do the final walk-through at the house Friday, but the seller put if off (again) until Dec 1 – which is the day we were supposed to move in. Whatever. By 12/03 we’ll be in or we’ll be enjoying resort living at her expense. It’s all good.

Cherie says Willie is pulling up on everything and really working at getting more mobile. He’ll be 9 months this Saturday and weighs about 21 pounds and wearing 9-12 month outfits, so it sounds like he’s doing OK. Crucita is looking forward to a short break, and just aching to get into the house and start getting it ready for Christmas.

I’ll be thinking about my friends during this holiday season and all of the things we used to do together. And for close friends, like you, there will be special prayers of thanks. I hope you have a wonderful and memory-filled Thanksgiving, and that as the holiday season comes and goes, you and your loved ones will ponder on the True Love.

In Sister Act and Sister Act II, we saw Whoopi Goldberg and a gaggle of singing nuns take standard secular songs and turn them into hymns. That’s been happening in my head this morning, so I thought I’d share with you how it works. Remember the movie “Love Story?” And what about the theme song? “Where do I begin to tell the story of a love that could not be? A great love story that is older than the sea? Where do I start?” I kind of started hearing the melody first, then some of the lyrics drifted into my Swiss-cheese brain, and then it dawned on me that that’s the story of Jesus and me. It’s part of Thanksgiving, I guess, because I sure do feel thankful to have a message like that rolling around in my head. And today as I meditate on what that all means, I hope that lyric is the story of Jesus and you, too.
Make it a wonderful weekend
