Good Morning and Happy Sunday to you! As you head out to take on the day, please remember, this is the Lord’s Day, set aside to rest and focus on our blessings. Today I feel blessed by you, all of my readers. I know that every day you are there sharing with me the celebrations that come up throughout the month, laughing with me sometimes, feeling sad with me at others. Knowing you are there keeps me coming back and posting, not giving up even on the days when I’m feeling a little tired. Today’s celebrations are short and sweet and give us plenty of time to spend with God, with family and remembering the reason for Memorial Weekend.

Trinity Sunday – Trinity Sunday, also known as Holy Trinity Sunday, is celebrated a week after Pentecost Sunday in honor of the most fundamental of Christian beliefs—belief in the Holy Trinity. The mystery of the Trinity is one of the big stumbling points for a lot of people, but it’s all summed up in a basic and simple way. God is three Persons in One Nature. The three Persons of God – Father, Son and Holy Spirit – they are all equally God, and they cannot be divided. I had a youth pastor explain it to me one time – The Trinity is sort of like water. Water comes in 3 forms – liquid, ice and steam. They are all different, yet all the same. If we can comprehend how water can come in different forms, it’s not that big a stretch to understand God comes in different forms also – but remains God undivided.
