Okay, I have to share some sad news here. I never thought it would happen in this household, but it has. My husband has become an internet junkie. His drug of choice? Blog reading and Facebook. We really have to get our wireless connection working or one of us is going down.
My buddy Clayton is coming over this morning for a while. I think we'll move his crafting cart down to the basement so that he can work down there while I make a batch of candles. I am itching to make a batch of Cappuccino Candles - complete with white foam on top. I've never made 2-color candles before so I am really excited about trying these. I will post a pic later.
Word of the day
Wednesday of the Fourth Week in Ordinary Time

Mk 6:1-6

Jesus departed from there and came to his native place, accompanied by his disciples.
When the sabbath came he began to teach in the synagogue,
and many who heard him were astonished.
They said, "Where did this man get all this?
What kind of wisdom has been given him?
What mighty deeds are wrought by his hands!
Is he not the carpenter, the son of Mary,
and the brother of James and Joseph and Judas and Simon?
And are not his sisters here with us?"
And they took offense at him.
Jesus said to them,
"A prophet is not without honor except in his native place
and among his own kin and in his own house."
So he was not able to perform any mighty deed there,
apart from curing a few sick people by laying his hands on them.
He was amazed at their lack of faith.

Thoughts from the cornfield:
I find it interesting that the faith most often portrayed in the Gospels doesn't seem to come from those closest to Jesus.

God bless our troops!

Please don't make me wait long...because I am a very impatient girl!

Patience, my pretty! We never made it downstairs. I have to run some errands and then I will be making the new creations. LOL!
