The Most Holy Trinity, June 07, 2009


Lord, you know I am growing older,
Keep me from becoming talkative and possessed with the idea that I must express myself on every subject.
Release me from the craving
to straighten out everyone’s affairs.
Keep me from the recitation of endless details,
Give me wings to get to the point.
Seal my lips when I am inclined
to tell of my aches and pains.
They are increasing with the years and my love to speak of them grows sweeter as time goes by.
Teach me the glorious lesson
that occasionally I may be wrong,
Make me thoughtful and not nosey, helpful but not bossy,
With my vast store of wisdom and experience
it does seem a pity not to use it all.
But, you know, Lord,
that I want a few friends at the end.

Our sponsored walk will take place
next Sunday, June 14, at 12 noon

We are pleased to announce that our very own
High King, Darren Holden,

We would be delighted if

light entertainment
while the walk is in progress.
Don’t forget your autograph book. and camera.
