Worthy of our 100% trust... Trustworthy... Jesus, we trust in you!

Baby chicks are here!  Also news about our big day on Sunday/David's first Communion day!  Not only will his grandpa be on his side of the Church with the cup of the Blood for him, but Father called and said that he wants to include Joy's Baptism during the First Communion Mass!  Two of Ruth's children receiving the Sacraments of First Communion and Baptism in the same mass!  Such a beautiful proclamation to all that The Church is loved and honored and showers us with blessings if only we embrace The Church without reservation and realize that through the Wisdom of The Catholic Church we are being helped down the narrow path to heaven forever with Jesus and Mary and The Saints!
Rose introducing Romeo to baby chicks for the first time!  He did reach out and pat his soft head with his fingers, and discovered SOFT!  Maybe today he will hold one, too?

The Gospel today is continuing on in John 3... the words "God is trustworthy" grabbed me as my mantra ever since we faced a grow back of John's brain cancer through the chemo came to us from our wonderful Bishop LeVoir..."When things are hard and challenging repeat these words; 'Jesus, I trust in you.'"
Each day since I have lived by this as we discovered in a dramatic way that our lives are out of our control and Jesus is in control!  It is a true and real reminder to me that I can trust in my Jesus and place all in him.  He is truly "trustworthy"!
Baby chick sandwich makes you smile in delight, right Rose?  We will also be celebrating Rose's 5th birthday on Sunday along with David's first Communion and Joy's Baptism/entry into The Church!  Surely a day of great JOY and Celebration in our family!  Then 3 days later Aunt Little Sister Hallel/Susan will be coming home to the farm with Nancy and her family!  The first time she has been here in 4 years!  She will miss David's first Communion, but told him that she will be at his second Communion at the Catholic School mass where she went along with her sisters and brother for 9 years on Thursday!  JOY and Hallelujah!  "Every time someone says my name - Hallel- they are giving God total praise to the highest heavens as it is truly Hallelujah!" 
Our baby chicks are in the new shop where the kids get in out of the cold and rain and play on their bikes as the men work on projects!  How grandpa Pat loves his new shop!  The kids love it too, and it is warm for these new baby chicks.  Who would have thought we would have such cold weather?  Lord, bring the spring back!
The gentle touch is needed with the tiny new baby chicks!

Jesus, there is so much each day that reminds us of our need for you as we humbly fall on our knees and turn to you in our weakness.  "When we are weak and sick is when we turn to Jesus."  Hallel told me 7 years ago when I had my hip replacement and I felt so worthless and weak.  "Then I want to be weak all the time, because I want Jesus!"  Yes, I want to be strong and shout from the rooftops your Truth, my Jesus!  That you are to be totally trusted and we need to give our all to You!  That we need to die to self and allow the Holy Spirit to dwell in our hearts, minds and souls..."We must obey God rather than men... We are witnesses of these things, as is the Holy Spirit whom God has given to those who obey him."  The Apostles today to those that told them to stop preaching in the name of Jesus in Acts 5 - the first reading from mass today.  The Apostles are now in heaven and are there to give us the strength and courage to preach The Truth!  Jesus, we trust in you.  Amen and Hallelujah
In 3 days our JOY will abound with David's first Communion, Joy's Baptism and Rose's 5th birthday - Family time is the Best most especially when we share our Faith with JOY from one generation to the next!  Then in 6 days we will all be together, minus Captain Joseph, when our Little Sister Hallel comes home... all 24 of us!  Lord, we place all this in your hands and trust in your plan for us... it all seems to be so amazing and we thank you!  Bless-bless, Barbara Luke
Three years ago today... Mary's first Communion!

Now with one more, baby Joy on her Baptism day, too!

It will be so different without Pat's mom as she has been always there for all of our Family/Church/Farm occasions.   She will be missed!  She has been gone for 6 months soon. 

There will be 3 Jeanie cakes on Sunday... one for each occasion!  The best!
