Deo gratias...

Heck, I didn't know I was going to be out of commission long enough for the magnolias to come into bloom! I managed to return to a partial schedule yesterday, and noticed this gorgeous little magnolia tree along the walkway at the church, sporting its beautiful flowers. It was such a joy to be back at the altar for three of the Sunday Masses, and I was able to celebrate today's Masses, too. There's still that unpleasant burning sensation in my lungs to contend with, and I feel short of breath... but I'm making progress and I look forward to getting back to more and more of my normal activities. Thanks to so many of you for writing and e-mailing, and I'm grateful for your continued prayers.
