Ah, the sun is shining and if you don't look directly out the window, you might think that spring is here. Yesterday's storm left us with several inches of snow. I have a headache this morning from driving around with the snow glare yesterday.

Last night at Mass Fr. Kevin announced that one of our parishioners had died during the week. This lady was a member of our "Prayers and Squares" quilt group. I was just getting to know her and my last interaction with her was when our group prayed together at the end of our meeting. We are working on a quilt for her daughter who has cancer. She also lost another daughter to cancer recently. Please pray for the family of Cathy Boris as they face yet another hard time in their lives.

I have been working steadily on Claire's quilt and hope to finish it in the next couple of days. Here is an update pic:

Kelli called a while ago. She and Sam are expecting their little girl at the end of June. We are now planning the baby showers. This afternoon we will be finding pictures of Sam as a baby. He will love that. Tee hee.

Word of the day:
Seventh Sunday of Ordinary Time

Mk 2:1-12

When Jesus returned to Capernaum after some days,
it became known that he was at home.
Many gathered together so that there was no longer room for them,
not even around the door,
and he preached the word to them.
They came bringing to him a paralytic carried by four men.
Unable to get near Jesus because of the crowd,
they opened up the roof above him.
After they had broken through,
they let down the mat on which the paralytic was lying.
When Jesus saw their faith, he said to the paralytic,
"Child, your sins are forgiven."
Now some of the scribes were sitting there asking themselves,
"Why does this man speak that way? He is blaspheming.
Who but God alone can forgive sins?"
Jesus immediately knew in his mind
what they were thinking to themselves,
so he said, "Why are you thinking such things in your hearts?
Which is easier, to say to the paralytic,
'Your sins are forgiven,'
or to say, 'Rise, pick up your mat and walk?'
But that you may know
that the Son of Man has authority to forgive sins on earth"
—he said to the paralytic,
"I say to you, rise, pick up your mat, and go home."
He rose, picked up his mat at once,
and went away in the sight of everyone.
They were all astounded
and glorified God, saying, "We have never seen anything like this."

God bless our troops!
