From the Pastor's Desk

Weekly thoughts and announcements from our Pastor, Fr. Tom Lewandowski.

I've Learned!

Things are never as bad as them seem….Anything negative can be turned into something positive….Things don’t always have to be symmetrical to look good….That if I am not good to myself, I cannot be good to anyone else….Things are more beautiful if you look at them through the eyes of a child….There are angels among us…Blocks are the best toys you can buy a child, love and time are the best gifts you can give them…..I need to be with others, but I also need my quiet time….When I solve my own problems, I have a better sense of self worth….It is not fair to judge, you never know what someone else is going through….You never know what someone else is feeling because you can’t feel or experience things in the same way they can….There is a lot of good in everyone….It is never too late to come to terms with our prejudices….I don’t have a favorite color, I like all colors…You can’t reach everyone, but if you touch one life, the effort is all worthwhile….If you throw spaghetti against the wall, some of it is bound to stick….Things don’t have to be perfect….It is okay to make mistakes….Try to give others the benefit of the doubt….It is easier to overcome fears when you simply face them….Not everything is going to go well all the time….Material goods are replaceable, people are not….We need to love people and  use things….Anger breeds anger,  hatred breeds hatred, but love breeds love….I’ve learned to forgive….I’ve learned to laugh, love and live again.
