The Elijah Cup And Some Other News

Hello dear world

How are you ? I know its been a couple of days since you heard from me but here I am once again. Okay,okay,okay first things first.....This morning my family and I went to our Church in our neck of the woods which is named "St. Philip Benizi Catholic Church". We went to 9:00 a.m. mass which was nice. At the end of mass my family and I received what is known as The Elijah Cup. What is The Elijah Cup you may be wondering ? Well every couple of Sundays different people and families receive The Elijah Cup so that they can pray for people to have a vocation whether it be to the Priesthood or to the Religious Life. The Elijah Cup also comes with a journal in which anyone can enter a thought, prayer or Scripture verse.

I have to say dear world that vocation is defined as an occupation for which a person is particularly suited or a calling to a religious life. Dear world some people know automatically that they are interested in being either a teacher, doctor, painter, lawyer, banker, mentor or like those on American Idol, a singer. Some people know that they want to play a sport like Baseball, Football or Hockey professionally. Others simply know they want to go out for the Olympics. Others know they want to explore the Universe in space and some want to travel all over the world. For me I don't know. I can't say that I have any particular talents. Some people like Robert James Waller, Nora Roberts, John Scalzi, Hadonfield Myers, Margaret Wise Brown, R.Brimm and J.K. Rowling are writers with lots of talent.

Anywho.....I wanted to share a little news with you. A few days ago a friend of mine sent me a package in the mail. The package included a letter and a book titled "Letters For Emily". I have to tell you dear world that there's nothing better than getting something in the mail from a friend. By the way my friend's name is Rebecca Anne. That's all I'm going to tell you for now because I will be sending her a letter in the mail as well so I don't want to give away all of the information.

In other news....today I watched "You've Got Mail" on DVD with Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan. I also bought some brown coffee colored socks with the words "Tall, Decaf, Nonfat Latte" on them. I call them my "You've Got Mail" socks. During the movie I ate some Mayfield Birthday Cake ice-cream with chocolate syrup is that weird ????

I would also like to report that the conclusion of Masterpiece Theater's Jane Eyre is coming on tonight at 9:00 p.m. I told you about it recently in one of my other entries. Jane Eyre is one of my favorite classics of all time.

So my dear world what did you do today ? How are things in your neck of the woods ? Is there anything you wanted to share with me ??? I will certainly be talking to you again soon. Take care my dear world.

Byyyyyyyyye !!!!!!!!!!!!!
