Or a coconut? Pineapple, I think. Yeah, pineapple.
Good thing I pre-prayed today’s Gospel, because I was getting nothing at all when I went back at it this morning. Conveniently I had already come up with just what I needed to hear. The introduction, which just happened to match this morning’s state of mind:
Take my yoke upon you . . . and you will find rest.
Lord, I am willing to suffer anything for You. I offer up all my sorrows, all my frustrations; I will take on whatever burden You desire, for Your name’s sake . . . because that’s Your holy vacation plan for me?
