Feast of St Ignatius of Loyola


St. Ignatius of Loyola

Take, Lord, and receive all my liberty,
my memory, my understanding,
and my entire will,
All I have and call my own.

You have given all to me.
To you, Lord, I return it.

Everything is yours; do with it what you will.
Give me only your love and your grace,
that is enough for me.

its so easy to pray this as I did several years ago but when you start to live it it can hurt.  A lot.  But I still love good holy Jesuits!! AMDG!!!

Blue Moon leaves very blue

I'm having a Blue Moon Belgian White beer tonite.  It's nice and cold/frosty in this 90 degree heat.  I was looking forward to taking my first sips of this Belgian Style Wheat Ale...but after my first few sips...I do not think I will be able to finish it.

How do I describe the taste?  Let me see...

Picture a nice summer rain shower in the hottest parts of Texas. A good downpour drenches everything, even some old rusted red wagon you have in your yard.  You don't ever move that rusted ol' leave it in your yard for a little rustic appeal.  Well, the downpour lasts all day, and everything gets flooded, especially the little rusted wagon's body.

A week goes by, and there's still a little bit of water in the wagon.

Picture yourself walking over to the wagon and falling face first into it...with your mouth open.  You take a good gulp of the water that's been resting in it for a week.

THAT'S how Blue Moon Belgian White tastes like!!!!

I give it one out of five empanadas
