Daily life in the parish

I just did a funeral this afternoon. It's quite chilly here, down in the 30's, which is cold for south Arkansas. The funeral was nice and well attended. It sleeted here all night, but it wasn't cold enough for it to stick, so while most of north Arkansas is suffering from ice damage and no electricity, we're doing OK. We have PRE this evening, and I wonder how many kids will be missing. The program starts off with a great deal of participation, but it starts dropping off during Advent, and then doesn't seem to pick back up very much during the rest of the year. Yes, Virginia, it does take commitment---just like anything else.

Success rises with leadership and falls without . . . Do the instructors put forth the effort to promote the commitment? The easiest things for a student to recognizes is how prepared the teacher is and if their heart is in. Sometimes the results we see are from the actions that we present . . .

Actually, I teach the senior high. Kids today have so many "activities" I don't see how they have time for anything. They have hardly any free time. What's funny is that they are starting to have events on Sundays and on Wednesday evenings. Those used to be sacrosanct, but no longer.
