It’s been a crazy weekend of football. Yesterday, we watched an exciting nail-biter as the Bills played Texans. Being that we minister in the Western New York area, Bills fever was high. It was almost like my own home team was playing. At one point I stood watching the tv – like that was going to help. It was a disappointing loss for the hometown Bills. This afternoon, we were treated to more excitement as the Eagles hosted the Seahawks. I knew the chances of the Eagles winning wasn’t great, but still rooted for them, hoping all the way that there would be a chance for a comeback. Alas, that didn’t happen, so the teams I would really root for are out for the year.
In other news, it’s been a week that started as vacation and finished back at work. I got sidelined in my running this week with gout. By Thursday I was at least back to walking and yesterday I ran 5 miles. It has been nice to have about 10 days off from bus driving. Tomorrow Anna starts back to work, so slowly life is returning back to normal.
This morning in church, we celebrated Epiphany – yes for the purists we were a day early, but I felt it was important to highlight this significant event in the life of Jesus – the visit of the Magi. Yesterday, Anna and I spent the day preparing Reyes de Rosca or King’s Bread. We started the tradition last year and I thought it would be good to do it again.
This week we prepare for our Covenant Renewal Service next Sunday. We also restart our Kid’s Club on Wednesday night. That’s about all I have for this week. Have a great week.
