"fools on Christ's account"... the narrow path called open to LIFE and raising LIGHTS!

I picture much of this happening in KC this weekend... with the 13 grandkids all together and Gus has gotten his own trampoline.  I am sure there is a lot of laughter and some tears here and there.  How we love to know that they are strengthening their family bond!  How we love to think, hope, and pray that our girls and their wonderful husbands are forming life-long friendships to face all that the world tries to throw at us!  According to the world's standards we are "fools on Christ's account" as we swim against the tide by being open to LIFE and raising LIGHTS for this world of death/darkness!

We are so grateful for the wedding we are invited to attend today.... it is right on the path to KC and gave Pat, I, and John the message that we are to join the rest of our family all gathered together at Nancy's home in KC!  Last minute packing and checking all fences are locked and all electric fences working and all bales put away and all the canning jars filled with lots of goodness in the trunk, and morning prayers shared, and The Word in our hearts, minds and souls - reminding us that there we are called to be "fools on account of Christ" and to place our Faith foremost above all else!
Sometimes we fall and it hurts, but we are lifted up by prayer and worship and Praise HIM from the depths of our soul... HE is in control!  Love to see the Hallel Psalm 145 of total praise in mass today!
The Lord is near to all who call upon him!


Jesus, we love and praise you in the good and the bad and the ups and the downs and we embrace our Most Cherished Cross and follow after you.  Jesus, go with us this day of travel, celebration and prayer.  Jesus, we give all the control over to you and thank you for answering our heartfelt prayers!  Jesus, we trust in you.  Amen and Hallelujah
Anticipating the meals we will share and have been shared.  I think we can touch upon how it was for our mothers.... Pat's mom had 12 to feed each meal plus a hired man, and my mom also had 13 to feed.  Yes, we will be 22 strong, but it is still a glimpse of having an overflowing table at meals!  Bless-bless, Barbara Luke and all my family soon to be together under one roof, only missing our Little Sister Hallel!
The sign is still on my barn and I still embrace it with all my heart! 




Tomorrow is the big day - St Teresa pray for us!
