Turtles Like Water!

So, about a week ago I got a pet Turtle! I named him Serafini (meaning 'finished'), and was all excited for the next 25 years of our pet-owner relationship. Around Saturday night I realized he wasn't moving around in his aquarium much- or eating anything! When I flipped him upside down- no reaction from the little turtle guy...

As I'm sure you understand, I became quite concerned. Last night, I added a couple inches of water- and he went nuts! He was swimming, swimming, swimming- and swimming. Finally, I had a happy turtle again. I guess turtles like water. I guess turtles are made for water!

I've been thinking a lot about what we are made for. This week, Holy Week, is the time that we relive Jesus' suffering, death, and resurrection. If any week can tell us what we are made for- it is this one.

We are made to know, love, and serve Jesus. We are made to share in His sufferings for the redemption of the world. When we are walking with Jesus, we are like a turtle in water.

Join us this week as we draw close to Jesus, through leading the Parish Stations of the Cross this Friday.
