If you look outside this morning you would think it was warm and mild. But don't be fooled. Here in mid-Michigan it is 3 degrees. This winter has been long and cold. But when it's over, spring will be that much sweeter.
Today is Monday. That means laundry, bills, and zone 1 - entrance, front porch, dining room. I also have a Disciples in Mission meeting tonight. Wednesday the choir begins to rehearse for Easter so there are folders to be put together. Today is also Prayer Quilt Monday. I probably won't get there today as work piled up last week - mainly due to me putzing and not getting done what I needed to get done. I never got to the basement - which is now wet due to last week's rains. The tiles are coming up. I wish we could water proof, but the way things look with the economy, I think I will be happy with getting the drain fixed and putting down a rug. The bathroom probably won't get done any time soon, but that's okay too. The tub doesn't leak and the sink faucet has been replaced. I like my birdhouse bathroom. But since the remodel isn't in the near future, I am going to have to do something about the contact paper behind the new toilet. Looks pretty bad. Fortunately, I am the queen of contact paper and I will fix that soon.
I am now off to start my day.
Word of the day
Monday of the First Week of Lent
Today the Church celebrates : St Chad, St. Simplicius, Pope
Jesus said to his disciples:
"When the Son of Man comes in his glory,
and all the angels with him,
he will sit upon his glorious throne,
and all the nations will be assembled before him.
And he will separate them one from another,
as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats.
He will place the sheep on his right and the goats on his left.
Then the king will say to those on his right,
'Come, you who are blessed by my Father.
Inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world.
For I was hungry and you gave me food,
I was thirsty and you gave me drink,
a stranger and you welcomed me,
naked and you clothed me,
ill and you cared for me,
in prison and you visited me.'
Then the righteous will answer him and say,
'Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you,
or thirsty and give you drink?
When did we see you a stranger and welcome you,
or naked and clothe you?
When did we see you ill or in prison, and visit you?'
And the king will say to them in reply,
'Amen, I say to you, whatever you did
for one of these least brothers of mine, you did for me.'
Then he will say to those on his left,
'Depart from me, you accursed,
into the eternal fire prepared for the Devil and his angels.
For I was hungry and you gave me no food,
I was thirsty and you gave me no drink,
a stranger and you gave me no welcome,
naked and you gave me no clothing,
ill and in prison, and you did not care for me.'
Then they will answer and say,
'Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty
or a stranger or naked or ill or in prison,
and not minister to your needs?'
He will answer them, 'Amen, I say to you,
what you did not do for one of these least ones,
you did not do for me.'
And these will go off to eternal punishment,
but the righteous to eternal life."
God bless our troops!
