Fr. Steve’s updates

The illness has really forced me to take one day at a time. I don’t know how long it will take for me to bounce back from surgery or how much I will – or won’t – be able to do over the summer months.

Sunday, May 2, 2010

At our monthly SCJ meeting, this afternoon we shared our summer plans.

My family teases me about being the great planner and lining up dates and activities many months ahead of time.

The illness has really forced me to take one day at a time. I don’t know how long it will take for me to bounce back from surgery or how much I will – or won’t – be able to do over the summer months.

But, I will do what it takes to get in shape, bounce back and be active again.

All of this helps children to live a bright, productive, possibility-filled future.

  1. I like the “can do” attitude!
    Don’t rush the schedule. There will be plenty of time for meetings and appointments! There always is. LOL.
    Schedule Fr Steve time….Take this opportunity to slow down some and enjoy your life. No matter what is going on with our health, it is a great life you know??
    I am focused on praising God this week. Saturday it will be 1 year since my last chemo treatment, and I am cancer free! Praise the father for all his gifts. It won’t be long before you can join me in claiming the freedom from this cancer.
    God bless, Joe

  4. It’s hard to live with the “one day at a time” methodology when you’ve been a planner all your life…the day will come when you can plan away again…but right now, it seems you plan is to take it one day at a time.

    Peace, Fr. Steve
