Odds and Ends

My wedding dress was delivered to the dress shop today. I'm going to be fitted tomorrow morning. Things are really starting to come together. It should be finished in time for my bridal portrait on Friday. If the weather is nice we'll do them outside, if not, inside. I feel like the Pointer Sisters...I'm so excited! I'm getting my hair done that day, too. Then Saturday, Kevin and I are going to Tupelo for a bridal shower on Sunday. Mrs. Riley's friends are always so nice to me. They treat me like they've always known me. I love going to mass there at St. James. Father Henry is so inspirational. Speaking of mass, RCIA classes are going well. I go every Thursday night. Kevin goes with me when he's in town. Last night was the most interesting for me so far. We discussed the Bible and saints. It's interesting, Protestants believe in saints, but I don't really remember "learning" about them, persay. It's important for me to point out that Catholics don't worship saints. They admire them, hold them dear, find comfort in knowing that these other holy humans have been through the same trials and tribulations that we experience. I'm sad to say that there is no Saint Cynthia...maybe one day. Oh well...

Have fun this weekend!
I love learning about the saints.

There are some excellent books about the saints you would enjoy. I particularly liked reading about the devotion of the martyrs when I was growing up Catholic. Makes our daily trials and tribulations seem minimal. Glad you are enjoying the classes.
