The Gospel today was the version of Jesus calming the storm from Matthew 8... how can I not go there? This was the reading on Father's day 8 years ago from Mark, and when we were stunned by the news that John had a tumor in his brain and called France to tell Susan/Hallel, and she reminded us that "this is the storm and Jesus is in control."
Lord, I am yours and need you to help me through the storms of life. I am weak and I am sick and I am knocked around... that is when I turn to you, my Lord! Jesus, I trust in you. Bless-bless, Barb
