My mother's birthday, and 3-7 inches of rain overnight!
Second time around - "God is blessing you now, David!"
While we were sharing Eucharist with Pat's mom this morning... we discussed the differences between the hospitality overboard in the first reading and Jesus's response to Martha in the Gospel..."Well, Jesus is here in the second." John shared and it seemed to be truth to our ears and hearts. When Jesus beckons and heals and shares with us in our lives we need to stop and fall on our knees and open our hearts, minds and souls to HIM! "Lord, I am not worthy that you should enter under my roof, but only say the Word and my soul shall be healed." We say this just before we go forward to receive his Body and Blood!
Our crops and pastures certainly have enough water to last for a while. I did hear Pat say that in a week and a half they will be praying for rain again!
Lord, we thank you for watering the earth. Bless my mother on her birthday today, and give her more good time here with her family. How glorious it is to sit at the feet of my parents who have devoted themselves to love and serve You and say "yes" without counting the cost to all that you ask of them. http://familysoulstory.blogspot.com/p/the-amazing-story-of-13-becoming.html They have welcomed many into our home including 4 other siblings to become our brothers and sisters. They have modeled for us how we are to love The Church and sit at the feet of Jesus through his Bride, The Church filled with Mary, the Saints and Angels all praising God forever and ever. How I long for that to be for me, too! Jesus, we trust in you. Amen and Hallelujah
