On the lowcarb front:

Be patient my pretties! LOL!

Word of the day:

Matthew 16:13-20
Now when Jesus came into the district of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, "Who do people say that the Son of Man is?" And they said, "Some say John the Baptist, but others Elijah, and still others Jeremiah or one of the prophets." He said to them, "But who do you say that I am?" Simon Peter answered, "You are the Messiah, the Son of the living God." And Jesus answered him, "Blessed are you, Simon son of Jonah! For flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but my Father in heaven. And I tell you, you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of Hades will not prevail against it. I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven." Then he sternly ordered the disciples not to tell anyone that he was the Messiah.

Thoughts from the cornfield

Another "God" moment for Peter. We heard a homily yesterday at Mass in which Fr. Kevin talked about how we grow in faith. He posed a question. "How do you suppose Peter would have answered that question just before his own death?" That point struck home because when Jesus questioned Peter, Peter's answer sounded like it came off one of those sheets of 120 questions we used to have to memorize for Confirmation. God supplied Peter with the answer. Peter didn't say that on his own, but on a deeper level a seed was being planted. I suspect that when Peter faced his own crucifixion, the answer came out of his deep faith - the faith he had grown into.

God bless the troops!
