I guess I didn't take pictures of my own little ones helping with canning until they were older... that is pretty much how we remember these days, and there will be no doubt that each one of Ruth's helped out.
Morning prayer and doing the readings together with Pat seems long away, and it was about 6 hours ago now... but it was good to find that we are in Luke 4 today and see Jesus revealing that he is The Christ come as it was predicted over and over in the OT. Pat made a good observation this morning about how we are looking for the second coming as St Paul mentions today in I Thessalonians 4, while the Jewish people are still awaiting the Messiah as they do not recognize Jesus as that. Talk about looking at the Spiritual world differently! All of this is reminding me of a wonderful post Nancy just wrote on her blog about the OT and the NT as she has learned through the eyes of little boys...
Most of the 60 quarts but we have started processing.
Jesus, may we always be awake and be ready for you at work in our lives! May we always hold onto the Truth that today just as 2,000 years ago when you walked the earth on your feet... you use our hands and feet to bring glad tidings to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim liberty to the captives and recovery of sight to the blind, to let the oppressed go free, and to proclaim a year acceptable to the Lord. Isaiah and Luke 4 May we be always sharing your LIGHT/LOVE/LIFE/Jesus in Gospel and Sacrament. May the Mercy we have been given be returned to those in our lives - most especially those in our domestic Church/family. Jesus, we trust in you. Amen and Hallelujah
Oh, those saints are so helpful to see The Truth!
How I long for this to be my truth!
All the way for us!
