God’s Sense of Humor

Friday, October 29, 2010

I chuckled at God’s sense of humor this morning during morning prayers when I read the scriptures from Habakkuk 3 – “He makes my feet swift as those of hinds and enables me to go upon the heights!”

I drove to Rosebud to see my Spiritual Director and talk things over, as I try to do every month or so. While I may not be where I want to be physically yet, I think I’m getting to a better place in the other areas of my life. And the spiritual journey is most important of them all.

Usually, I’m one of the judges of the Halloween costumes, but due to today’s trip I missed seeing all our Trick or Treaters come by the school offices. I did get home in time to peek in on the High School Party, complete with music, strobe lights and lots of treats. As I could have predicted, there were way more students around the edges of the room than on the dance floor, but I was sure no different in my teenage years.

At St. Joseph's Indian School, our privately-funded programs for Lakota (Sioux) children in need have evolved over 90 years of family partnership, experience and education. Because of generous friends who share tax-deductible donations, Native American youth receive a safe, stable home life; individual counseling and guidance; carefully planned curriculum based on Lakota culture and individual student needs and tools to help build confidence, boost self-esteem and improve cultural awareness. All of this helps children to live a bright, productive, possibility-filled future.

  1. When I was in High School, my boyfriend and I often went to “old folks” dances, and did square dancing and othe round dances there. We had a great time..and learned a lot about that sort of thing. We also learned some Irish “Jigs” and Sailor’s Hornpipe dancing. Kids today don’t know what they are missing..! Someone needs to teach those kids to “Dosey-doe”..! That will bring those boys out of the corneres..!

  2. Mia has made an excellent suggestion: Square dancing is a wonderful way to get all the “wallflowers” out on the floor. And it’s great fun. There is almost certainly a capable “caller” in the community of or around St. Jo — swing your partner, do-se-do!
