Sunday- Peter and myself went to sunday mass "Epiphany" Sunday to celebrate the arrival of the 3 Magi. It was such a wonderful mass. We now have a new priest. And he lit up the church with his charisma .
While going up to the alter, to kiss little baby Jesus after communion. There was a sudden thud from the back of the church... The priest stopped ,(holding baby jesus tight to his chest)! looking down the isle..everyone had turned around, i did the same and there was our dear friend, who of course isn't familiar with the old church, had fell off the step onto a painting plaque of Jesus surrounded by angels .! I ran to his aid. Where the ladies of the church had picked him up and was helping him. He wasn't hurt. "just a little cut on his forhead and pulled a nail a little. "go on he said.. I am ok. go and kiss baby Jesus!. And the ladies continued to make a fuss of him.
On our way driving home. We had such a laugh about it. Peter said.. "oh dear, maybe its my punishment for not going to kiss baby jesus.! After which he added.. "Gosh,and another thing, I have never had as many women around me all at one time." Seemed like they thought i was going to die.! ): We spent the day laughing our heads off.
In the evening we were invited to Petros christmas eve dinner and another christmas was celebrated.(my dear Ukranian friends) Lots of great food and celebration.. A very happy Epiphany sunday. Peter is fine and is enjoying his stay in the warm sun.
It's a time of the year that is enjoyable here. Our weather is good to us. But rain will come eventually.
I hope that you have all had a good time, ending off the first week of the New Year.
