Wednesday, September 10, 2008

Well, yesterday was a long one but I got a lot accomplished. Did everything on my list and then some. I am still behind. That never changes.

Tonight I meet with the choir to talk about songs that will be on John Fetzner's memorial CD. He left quite a legacy for one so young.

Our handsome son just stopped in. They are pouring the cement for his paint booth today.
We had a brief discussion about the upcoming presidential election. Sam is kind of dipping his toes in local politics. He was asked to be on the planning commission for the village of Shepherd. This is the same commission that he sat before to get the variances for his expansion plans for his auto body shop. They treated him very well - not just because they approved his variance, but their whole demeanor. Sometimes our kids turn out well in spite of us. All of ours have done us proud - they teach me new lessons daily. I am greatly blessed that the are all in Michigan - the furthest one away is in Ionia. (Hi Nina!)

I am off to fill cantor folders and then go for a walk on this gorgeous day!

Word of the day
Lk 6:20-26
Raising his eyes toward his disciples Jesus said:
“Blessed are you who are poor,
for the Kingdom of God is yours.
Blessed are you who are now hungry,
for you will be satisfied.
Blessed are you who are now weeping,
for you will laugh.
Blessed are you when people hate you,
and when they exclude and insult you,
and denounce your name as evil
on account of the Son of Man.

Rejoice and leap for joy on that day!
Behold, your reward will be great in heaven.
For their ancestors treated the prophets
in the same way.

But woe to you who are rich,
for you have received your consolation.
But woe to you who are filled now,
for you will be hungry.
Woe to you who laugh now,
for you will grieve and weep.
Woe to you when all speak well of you,
for their ancestors treated the false
prophets in this way.”

Thoughts from the cornfield:
Just a reminder that we are IN the world, not OF the world.
The Beatitudes are definitely words to live by.

God bless the troops!
