Best of Luck, Father Saiki

Today was Fr. Saiki’s last Sunday Mass at my parish. While I am happy he will be furthering his studies and wasn’t always thrilled to hear what he had to say in his homilies, it’s sort of like a theology professor or two I had sometimes talking or tough love, I must admit (as I did to him) it was this that brought me back to some of my core beliefs as a Catholic.

I learned a great deal of teachings that I never would have otherwise learned. He made me question why I believed what I do and did. Fr. Saiki is one of those priests that actually tried to tie everything back together in the end and make it all in one pretty package. I found him very motivational and inspirational. I will really miss him on Saturday evenings for Mass.

As I always say when I have to part ways with someone, “If it’s meant to be we’ll meet again; God always finds a way.” I believe it to be true, too! God puts people in our lives and takes them away when the lesson is complete; it is then up to us to put that lesson into practice. We are all teachers and learners to someone.

So, as I end this entry, and hope that Fr. Saiki will find this blog one day, I will end it with how I began it (as I learned from him); I am happy you will be furthering your studies and pray you will have much success in the future. Best of luck, Fr. Saiki! šŸ™‚

Love and prayers, as always! ā¤

About Christy

I enjoy: my family, my faith life, photography, drawing; writing, working on cars, basketball, football, and baseball. These are just a few of the many things I like...you'll just have to read my blog to know me better to know more of them. Other things you may not catch on that I enjoy are: cats, angels, ballroom dancing, Christian music, camping (being one with nature and all of God's creations), traveling, cherry and apple blossoms, and the colors blue (in all shades), white, black, dark purple, and SOME shades of pink. (Rainbows are cool, too. And I'm NOT a lesbian! Although, I'm friends with some gays and lesbians as well as a few transgenders.) I am Roman Catholic. I graduated from Johnson County Community College, where I majored in Animation in hopes of fulfilling my dreams of being a computer generated animation movie maker. I also have a degree in Corporate Communication from Avila University. I'm currently employed at Nestle Toll House/Haagen-Dazs (at Oak Park Mall in Overland Park), I own my own business -- C & S Productions, L.L.C. (check it out at http://www.csproductionsllc.com), and am single. My favorite time of year is Winter and the Christmas season! It's just so...well, I can't put it into words. ^_^ Lastly, I am 35 years young!
