When we came to this place where the trail splits, it immediately reminded me of Robert Frost's The Road Not Taken.
Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
and be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth.
Then took the other as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that, the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,
And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I marked the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way
I doubted if I should ever come back.
I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I,
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.
It was a great afternoon and a beautiful way to celebrate the First Communion of my niece and nephew on this most fitting day of Corpus Christi!

The guys built a "T" out of lumber, which with the help of a jack, would be used to lift the ceiling.Sambo helped with this project all day. This is how you learn to do a job and also, how to be a man.

As the day went on, I noticed more and more of these shirts on people enjoying the conference and correctly deduced that one of the vendors there must be giving them out!
"Come, Holy Spirit,
Fill the Hearts of your faithful and kindle in them the fire of your love.
Send forth your Spirit, and they shall be created.
And you shall renew the face of the earth.
O God, who by the light of the Holy Spirit,did instruct the hearts of the faithful,
Grant that by the same Holy Spirit, we may be truly wise
And ever enjoy his consolations,
Through Christ our Lord. Amen."
