Willie and I attended the 83rd birthday party of Brother Alexis. A key figure in both of our lives, Brother has taught us so many lessons. But, you can really boil them down to two things, as Deacon Bob so eloquently stated today... Love God and Love Your Neighbor.
Alexis always gave me the great advice to Keep it Simple... strip away all the material things and focus on Love and Service... doesn't get much simpler than that, does it. He told me that if there is someone you love, don't wait until their funeral to tell them... tell them now... tell them today. Also, a way to "get out of yourself" is to be of service to others... so, have you been of service today?
It was a great day with great friends and really great people.
By the way, I did NOT eat any cake. :-)
