|Trying to hear the ocean in a Queen Conch.|
|The omnipresent dog and his omnipresent nose.|
|The smell of the driftwood, seaweed, feathers et al. drove him crazy!|
|The dog should know all of the parts of the leaf by now.......|
RealOn Sunday we got out the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd Altar I materials. Alleluia was learning that the altar servers ring the bell when the priest elevates the chalice. I put this under "Real" because I've been thinking this week about the Real Presence of Christ, contrasting this reality with my tendency (when I'm stressed out) to escape into fantasyland or imagine ridiculous scenarios or preposterous dialogs. It was refreshing to think about His Real Presence and also to be surrounded by the shells, rocks and leaves that are His real creations!
|The bell is the blur in the lower left.|
|A good shell guide is worth its weight in gold!|
|Alleluia is really drawn to the "real."|
