This made me incredibly sad - specifically the bit about Father attempting to take a nice stroll with his family only to be immediately accused of having a secret illegitimate family. God bless him for forgiving so quickly. I don't think I'd've been anywhere near as charitable.
Super excited about this! Catholic Sistas is doing a give-away contest with all sortsa goodies. Go there and enter now! And if you win the wine, I expect a glass. ;)
This made me a variety of things. I was proud to call this guy a Christian. His example of forgiveness is something I could stand to learn something from. However, I also felt a twinge of anxiety as I realized that this sort of violence against Christians is on the rise. And considering the new job I just landed, I can't help but wonder if in five or ten years, I'll be dealing with a similar rash of surprise attacks.
Which leads me to my next blog post...
Stay tuned for "My New Job." It makes me as happy as this video John got of Vince when he was just 3.5 months old. And yes... my chunker is still big for his age. :)
