Annunciation………. Go out and announce to all around you

          There used to be four churches within my area, now they have down sized to two churches and the new name of the church is, ” Annunciation Parish”. I actually like the new name and what the word Annunciation really stands for, it truly means to go out and announce to those around you, of the new beginning and another chance to be better and stronger, moving forward on our paths of our journey of life.

With this merger of the four churches comes a lot of pain and sadness, as two of the four churches had to close, which leads to the congregation of these churches who spent their lives worshiping and praying at those churches, not too mention being baptized, first Communions, conformations,being married and even celebrating a life being taken from us at these churches, there are a lot of lives and journey’s of those lives that are being changed as we speak right now, the pain and the sadness are at the for front within these congregations, but if we all together as a community and as a new congregation of the Annunciation Parish can work together, we can see past what we look at as an ending and truly see that we are blessed by God himself,  to truly start a new beginning and announce to the Community and the World, that we can start a new, to be better and stronger a long our paths of our journey of life.

Everything around us in our lives, including we the people of Mankind go through many changes as we walk our journey”s, some of these changes are simple and easy to adapt to, but there are many changes that come with much pain and sadness, the magic word to us all is ” adapt”, when we adapt correctly these changes, then the sadness and pain will flow into healthy and happy. Healthy doesn’t just mean being in good physical condition, being healthy in our minds brings goodness and the ability to share this goodness to all those around you, when we are healthy in our minds, body and soul, than the sadness will go away and turn to much happiness, which helps us share this happiness with all those around us. The new Annunciation Parish is a chance for all within it’s new Congregation, to announce to all within the Community and the World, that even in sadness with what we see as an ending, there truly can be a new beginning and a chance to be better and stronger as we walk our paths of our journey of life.

The formation of Annunciation Parish is a chance for the new Congregation, to go out and Announce to the Community and the World, that even through the sadness and the pain of an ending, can come healthy and happiness of a new beginning. There will be many endings as well as many beginnings a long our journey”s of life, when we approach them with true healthiness and happiness, we can adapt to them and be better and stronger no matter what may cross our paths, may the Peace of God be with all at the new Annunciation Parish and may the new Congregation, truly go out and announce to the Community and the World, that through the sadness and pain of an ending, can come good health and happiness to all, so they can be better and stronger a long their paths of their journey of life.

” Within all the endings we encounter in life there always comes a new beginning, we just have to look deep within ourselves to truly see this new beginning”

” Annunciation is another way of saying, go out and announce to all those around you, the true beauty that is around us”

” May the peace of God be with Annunciation Parish and may they all announce to the Community and the World, the good and the true spirit of Jesus Christ”

The true meaning of Marriage…….

Marriage of today has changed and not what it truly is, or what God has showed us what it is supposed to be, Marriage is the joining of a Man and a Woman that love each other and also have become one, from this marriage you have two loving Individuals that show their love of one another, by giving birth to children as a product of their love, now as the Man and Woman become Mother and Father, they raise their children with the same love of one another and do it every year of their marriage.

A true marriage never ends, these two loving Individuals become one and their love of each other never ends, just like on our paths along our journey of life, true marriage will have its bumps and hurdles in the road, but what makes true marriage work, is the two Individuals work together to make it work and make the road smooth along their path together.

When a Man and a Woman become one in marriage, every year of their marriage is an anniversary and a celebration of their love of one another, the first year for some may be important, but what we take for granted in this Society, is the fact that when a man and a woman have been together for over 50 years, shows just how special that marriage really is.

A wedding Anniversary isn’t just about celebrating a marriage between a man and a woman, it is celebrating the coming together of two Individuals, showing their love of one another and forming a true bond in life, when you form this true bond, you are building this foundation that nothing will penetrate, there is nothing on our paths along our journey of life, that will match the strength of this special bond in marriage between a man and a woman, which is why we have anniversaries to celebrate the coming together two Individuals as one.

Whether a wedding anniversary is 1 year or 100 years, you are celebrating the coming together of a man and a woman who love each other, who have also built this strong bond between them, which has made their foundation together so strong, that nothing will penetrate it, communication is a main ingredient of this marriage lasting over time, especially of 50+ years, within today’s society you may never see a marriage of 50+ years, because the definition of marriage has changed and the true meaning of marriage has changed also, you don’t have this true bond being formed and each member of the marriage only wants what they as an Individual want, instead of two Individuals coming together as one, so when you know of a special couple celebrating 50+ years of marriage, take the time to acknowledge them and wish them many more years, along their journey of life together.

” true marriage is a bond of two Individuals that have come together as one and formed a foundation that nothing can penetrate”

” Wedding Anniversary is a celebration of a man and a woman that have come together as one, til death do them part”
