I was flipping through old photographs, looking for ones of me and my grandfather, because yesterday would have been his 80th birthday. When I got to some from my baptism, I looked at the date and realized I was baptized the day after his birthday on November 13, 1988. No wonder 13 is my lucky number!
24 years ago today, I was baptized at St. Margaret Mary Alacoque Catholic Church. My faith is very important to me, and it’s gotten me through the scariest, most uncertain, and tiring times; and throughout it all, it fills me with love and fearlessness.
I won't get into it much more than that here, but I will say...
I love my Church and I love my God. I love Mary and I love Jesus. I love feeling comforted when I miss my grandpa, but then I imagine him laughing and sipping wine with Jesus.
Whether you believe in a God, or gods, or none at all, I hope you believe and have faith in something that fills you with love, fearlessness, and perseverance the way my faith does me.
BIG LOVE & HUGS
