We interrupt this blog....

I will be off-line this weekend at a retreat for our ninth grade confirmation students, who will be writing faith statements, designing banners and in other ways preparing for their Confirmation Day.

I am hoping for good weather as a "Challenge Course" is one of their retreat activities tomorrow.

And I'm a little nervous. The "Challenge Course" is not strenuous, but last year, after the retreat, I developed a back spasm that sent me to the doctor and had me in intense pain. I really don't want that to happen again.

P.S. I will read more Friday Fives when I return on Sunday!

Now, I need to finish packing, buy communion bread, and find a rain coat (for if it isn't good weather.)

Hope it goes well!

P.S. an after-thought said...

I don't like being up late unless it is my decision, so retreats are a problem for me. I'm always grateful for the people who work with the youth who are willing to do that. God Bless the whole weekend, including your back.

You're a great gal Diane. It encourages me to see a lot of time and energy go into confirmation. I read of a parish that take a whole year for it! Good on you for undertaking such important work.

You left me a comment awhile ago, and seeing it tonight I was struck by its thoughtfulness and found it encouraging. Thank you.
