To my 43rd birthday party! All of you are welcome to come.
Now, I know it's a bit of a distance for those of you in Australia, Bosnia, so I thought I'd make it easier on you and just have a cyber party.
We're going to have a St. Francis theme, even though we're still gonna party like it's 2099. But hey, nobody knew how to extract the joy out of life like St. Francis. Right? So, it's cool. Anyway, all the wine will be cyber wine. And the cyber cake has NO calories! So we will eat, drink, and be merry.
There's almost always a but. You have to bring a present. I know. That's not very Franciscan, but it's not just for me. It's for the edification of all of us. I want you to bring with you a lovely quote from St. Francis. And dig deep lovies. Francis wrote more than the Canticle of the Sun.
But! If you must go with one of that one, please tell me what it means to you. How it speaks to you. And if you just can't find the right one, tell me if you've had your own love affair with the poor little man from Assisi. Can't think of a single incident where you've been moved by him? Then tell me something you may have learned from a Franciscan, like Richard Rohr or Murray Bodo. Or make up something with his vibe! I'm trying to make it easy for you. Work with me!
And use the comments, lovies. While I love to get personal email from you all, I want to share with everybody. It's a party for Heaven's sake!
This all kicks off on September 1st.
See you Saturday. I'll bring the food and wine. You bring your Francesco love.
Peace and all good!
(just because I'm embracing the name Claudia, doesn't mean I'll use it all the time. If I don't write it, just know an invisible Lame, but Intelligent is there.). :O)
