Sunday Reading Tattoo Agreement

So today’s Sunday and being the almighty and ever generous and compassionate Lord’s day, I went to church to celebrate. And to my surprise, one of the two readings featured my tattoo verse. For those of you who don’t know what verse I have tattooed on me it’s Sirach; a book not found in other denominations of Christianity. To my knowledge, only the Roman Catholic Bible has the book. The reading today was several verses longer than my verse but it’s part of the same chapter. The reading was about being filial to your parents and respecting them. And my quote specifically is Sirach 3:12-14 – “My child, help your father in his old age, and do not grieve him as long as he lives; even if his mind fails, be patient with him; because you have all your faculties do not despise him. For kindness to a father will not be forgotten, and will be credited to you against your sins;” It says father but this extends to mothers as well. And then I spent the whole day sleeping until 1800, then my family came over and we had dinner. We had prime rib that my uncle made and it was made so well. Then we played Exploding Kittens and we talked and reminisced about the old days. We pulled out old photos, shared stories. It was a great feeling. I mean I don’t have much to contribute to in terms of story, but I absolutely love and enjoy listening to other people’s life story. We also had Gung fu tea (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gongfu_tea_ceremony). It was very good tea. My uncle brought his teapots, each one specifically for brewing a specific tea. So that’s my whole day and then tomorrow I think we’re heading to Chinook mall to do some shopping. Other than that, that’s it!
