The girls were just here to load up the last of the stuff for the craft show. It's hard to believe that we are closing up our second year of doing this. We have learned so much! Each show gets a little easier to do. The setup is still the worst of it. Last night I managed to split the drawer on the bottom of one of our bins. I may have to leave the loading of the carts to the girls and I will haul them in and out. Nina came up to help us last night. She doesn't think she did all that much, but having that third person there is a huge help. Plus, Melisa had the kids with her for a bit and Nina kept them occupied. Grown up stuff is extremely boring to little ones. They thought that the covered tables made great places to hide - that is until Grandma slid a cart under there and scared them. Added into the mix is a very difficult funeral that I am playing for this morning so I found a sub for Mass tonight so that I wouldn't be totally bailing out on everyone else.
The guys made it safely up north. Now we'll see if the "Dirt" soap does it's stuff.
Word of the day:
Saturday of the Thirty-second Week in Ordinary Time
Jesus told his disciples a parable
about the necessity for them to pray always without becoming weary.
He said, “There was a judge in a certain town
who neither feared God nor respected any human being.
And a widow in that town used to come to him and say,
‘Render a just decision for me against my adversary.’
For a long time the judge was unwilling, but eventually he thought,
‘While it is true that I neither fear God nor respect any human being,
because this widow keeps bothering me
I shall deliver a just decision for her
lest she finally come and strike me.’”
The Lord said, “Pay attention to what the dishonest judge says.
Will not God then secure the rights of his chosen ones
who call out to him day and night?
Will he be slow to answer them?
I tell you, he will see to it that justice is done for them speedily.
But when the Son of Man comes, will he find faith on earth?”

God bless our troops!
