Our day started early for Pat and I as the storm approached us with rumblings and dark clouds and wind. We went out to do the chickens and got wet from the rain as we came back to the house. It was nice to do them together... Pat bought some more athletic chickens to compare to our fat and lazy broilers... so we have baby chicks again - red rocks.
"Through small things, greatness.
Because we all started out so very, very small.This is God's plan. And it is so beautiful." Nancy shared this today, and I wrote this in response;
God himself came into His world tiny in the womb, and that is the most amazing small thing of all!! And he asks us to follow after Him! All LIFE is to be embraced and protected as we are asked to be open to LIFE and raise our gifts from God - our children - as LIGHTS! Jesus, we trust in you. Bless-bless
Overwhelmed by your LOVE my Lord and Savior!
We had a mission speaker for the homily today sharing the poverty of those in Guatemala at our mission San Lucas Toliman. He shared some very moving stories with us illustrating the poverty we cannot even imagine. One story was about a blind man, who begged on the corner for nickels and dimes to feed his family. When he found out that he could have his cataracts removed and gain his sight... he told the kind doctor that he was able to beg to feed his two children and wife a meal a day, and if he couldn't do that there was no work for him and they would starve. So he left without the surgery and remained blind as it was the only way he could feed his family.
lots of work has to happen to make our place nice for all those coming out! It will hundreds of people - maybe a thousand!?!
Pancakes & sausage will be made by Chris Cakes
