There is nothing like experiencing something in life for the very first time. First Holy Communion, driving a car, going off to college, getting married, having your first child. These events in life are filled with joy, excitement and a sense of awe for what life and our faith has to offer. We are also presented with activities and encounters on a daily basis that we enter into routinely. So many of us go on auto pilot because we know what to expect from these day-to-day events. The challenge is how to keep routine things from becoming mundane. We should be mindful of the present moment and embrace all our experiences as if they were brand new to us. This includes spending time with family and friends, attending Mass, praying the rosary. Call in to Friday’s Take 2 with Jerry and Debbie and share how you have kept things anew in your life. Remember, what you share can impact another soul in a profound way. 1-800-585-9396.
