I Wish I Had Said…
Life is short. But it doesn’t always present itself that way. We can be lulled into thinking that we have all kinds of time remaining on earth. This is perhaps especially true when we’re younger and feel invincible. As life takes its twists and turns, there will inevitably be sentiments we hope to share with someone. These might be expressions of love and appreciation, moments of reconciliation, and more. Just about everyone will wake up one day and realize that the opportunity has passed. The one you had every intention of unburdening yourself to has died. While we believe that we are never truly separated from people we know who are deceased, we sometimes still carry with us the discomfort – or worse – of knowing that we should have said something important to them when there was still time. Has this happened to you? Your take on this topic will have a huge impact on those who don’t want to miss their golden opportunity, and possibly live to regret something that was left unsaid.
Take2 - 11/28/2018 - Pain, Pain, Go Away!
Pain, Pain, Go Away!
It’s a fact of life for so many people. Enduring pain in some part of your body on a daily basis is no fun. It can impact virtually every facet of your life, including family obligations, work duties, interest in and motivation for hobbies or interests, and many others. Perhaps you’ve searched high and low, far and wide for a solution to your chronic pain, without anything alleviating it or making it go away. Now, what do you do? We can embrace it, of course, and offer it for the glory of God and the salvation of souls. We should do that with any and all types of pain that we experience in life. But, for those who struggle with the same pain every day of their lives, it can become frustrating, debilitating, and even depressing, leading to all sorts of other health problems. Let’s unpack this difficult topic, and hear your takes on how you or someone you know manages to put their two feet on the ground for another day, when pain is the most familiar thing you have to look forward to.
Take2 - 11/27/2018 - Decorating for Christmas?
When Do You Break Out the Christmas Decorations?
By now, the sights and sounds of Christmas have already dominated the malls, stores, TV commercials, and even some radio stations. But we just got through Thanksgiving, and Advent doesn’t begin until next Sunday. Liturgically, Christmas begins on December 25 and runs through Epiphany, which is celebrated on January 6. In our churches, decorating follows the liturgical calendar through Advent and the Christmas season. For individual Catholics and families, there are no specific guidelines. So, what do you do with regard to decorating your home or yard for Christmas? Do you wait until Christmas Eve to put up your tree? When do you take the tree and decorations down? Have you sometimes felt like oddballs, being the only ones on your block without decorations until right before Christmas? Are we selling out to the secular spirit of the “holidays” by joining in the decorating craze well before Christmas Day? Let’s see what people think and how your approach this issue.
Take2 - 11/26/2018 - Still Looking for a Spouse!
There was a time when men and women entered into marriage at a relatively young age. In their late teens. In their twenties. Perhaps as late as their thirties. This was not across the board, and some married later in life. In recent decades, we’ve experienced a shift, and now being married by the time you’re in your thirties is considered “young,” while many people find themselves still wondering if God has a husband or wife for them well into their forties and fifties. Does the latter group include you? Have you become discouraged, or asked if you missed your vocational calling, or even given up altogether, believing that you’re going to spend the rest of your life “alone?” If so, let’s have a fruitful conversation about this.

Take2 - 11/21/2018 - Equal Time for the Holidays
Equal Time at the Holidays
Just about everyone has decisions to make about where they will spend Thanksgiving and Christmas. Husbands and wives each have their own families, and want to try to make sure they spend at least some time with them. It helps in making the decision when one’s family lives closer than the other’s. There are also extended relations and friends who may invite us to be with them at some point over the holidays. How do you make these decisions as a family? As a single person? Do you feel like you’ve “been there, done that,” and now stay close to home with your immediate family more often than not? Let’s talk about this so we can all learn tips on how to honor everyone we can at Thanksgiving and Christmas, while not neglecting ourselves or our own families.
