All In The Family Of God

LuMaxArt Golden Family With World Religions
  I always hear someone saying something negative about someone else. They also separate everyone and may make some remark about their family. Well I remember one day someone saying something negative about family. This made me sit back and really think about what family is and who is related to who. I also always see someone looking up their family history to see how far back they could go to see who is related to who.

What Are You Giving Up For Lent

  I can remember growing up as a young kid in the Catholic Church and they would always ask what are you giving up for lent. What I seem to remember is oh I am giving candy for Lent. Now there is nothing wrong with giving up candy. In fact my Mother said she is giving up candy for Lent. It kind of made me laugh, because she is in her 80s. Then what made me laugh again was when she said she just wanted to have some candy on one day. I said Mom the whole point is to give it up for Lent and not have any until Lent is over. Everyone wonders where we as kids get our ideas from.

Do You Have A Favorite Saint

  I myself do not have a favorite Saint. There are certain Saints that I think of more than others. Two that come to mind are Saint Patrick and Saint Francis Of Assisi. I think the reason I think of Saint Patrick is because of the holiday for Saint Patrick and because I like the color green. Now for Saint Francis Of Assisi it's because my Grandmother always asked Saint Francis to pray for her and others. She always had a statue of Saint Francis and I remember a plaque on her wall. It is just one of those things that have stayed with me all these years. There is also one more Saint that I think of quite a bit and that is Saint Thomas The Apostle. It's funny because that was the name of the Catholic Grammar School I went to as I was growing up. The second reason is because that was my Stepfathers middle name and that is what I chose when I made my Confirmation. It seemed special to me ,because it was his middle name.
