I’m down 2.8 pounds from last Wednesday

The blog gets short shrift this morning so that I can get on the treadmill. Textbooks need to be distributed and that is definitely a 2 person job so I'm going in early this morning. Tomorrow I have a staff meeting and Friday morning is Mass. I jealously guard my morning time because I need it, but this week it can't be helped - it's just the way things fell. The frustrating part is that I also have meetings every night. I managed to get 4 stockings made yesterday. We have about a month before our craft shows start, and our ad hits the stands about then too. Well, gotta hit the treadmill if I'm going to get a workout in this morning.

Update_____________________________________________
It was so hot in the house that I ended up going outside this morning. It was just getting light and it was a wonderful walk/jog. I also hit my first milestone on my Covey 10 pound goal. I set another goal yesterday to get my credit card paid off by December 31. I want all of that taken care of before I go down to 1 income.

Gospel

Lk 4:38-44

After Jesus left the synagogue, he entered the house of Simon.
Simon’s mother-in-law was afflicted with a severe fever,
and they interceded with him about her.
He stood over her, rebuked the fever, and it left her.
She got up immediately and waited on them.

At sunset, all who had people sick with various diseases
brought them to him.
He laid his hands on each of them and cured them.
And demons also came out from many, shouting, “You are the Son of God.”
But he rebuked them and did not allow them to speak
because they knew that he was the Christ.

At daybreak, Jesus left and went to a deserted place.
The crowds went looking for him, and when they came to him,
they tried to prevent him from leaving them.
But he said to them, “To the other towns also
I must proclaim the good news of the Kingdom of God,
because for this purpose I have been sent.”
And he was preaching in the synagogues of Judea.

Thoughts from the cornfield:
Ah, a woman's work is never done. :) I always wondered about that line: "She got up immediately and waited on them." But I think it's there to illustrate how completely Peter's mother-in-law was healed. No recovery time - she's healed and it's business as usual. I think this is what made the whole scene more remarkable.

Again, te demons know exactly with whom they are dealing. And the crowds came. No wonder Jesus ordered silence. Word was spreading. And always, he needed that deserted place to renew and refresh his spirit.



God bless the troops!
