Two great presentations closing out the National Council of Catholic Women convention in Pittsburgh. Tonight (Saturday) we tapped our feet and dosey-doe’d to Echo Valley Bluegrass, a band of 7 siblings (six girls and a boy).
Video below of five of the sisters rocking bluegrass in their living room.
And a great presentation by Bob Rice this morning on JOY. The video below gives a taste of his wonderful music. And here are a few quotes from his talk:
You can’t be joyful and fearful at the same time! Sorrow is not the opposite of joy — the opposite of joy is fear.
JOY is a fruit — to have this fruit, we need to have a good root — in God.
When we feel weak in our life, it’s because we’ve lost our joy.
Some lyrics from Bob Rice’s song, “No Longer Slaves”
You split the sea so I could walk right through it
My fears were drowned in perfect love.
Have a great Labor Day weekend!
