I went to South Boston "Southie" yesterday to watch the annual parade and had a blast hanging out. I've never done it before and since it's my last year (more like last couple of months) here in Boston I thought I should go check it out. Some of the highlights include:
- watching people wait 20 minutes to get into a liquor store because the shops were at capacity
- there was a whole Star Wars section in the parade - I'm not sure what Star Wars has to do with being Irish or St. Patrick's Day but it definitely made my day!
I've been really struggling to read my Bible the last couple of weeks. I feel like it is more of a chore than anything. However, last night I decided to read all four "Triumphant Entries" from Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. And came across one of my all time favorite Bible verses: "I tell you, he replied, if I keep quiet, the stones will cry out." Luke 19:40. I think I need to focus on that more throughout my daily life. Good verse to keep by my heart during Holy Week.
