The sun is shining today, but my temp thingy on the computer shows 28 degrees.
Yesterday we worked on invitations and party favors for a baby shower we are throwing for Kelli in May. I wish I had taken a picture of them before they were sealed. They are so cute.
The house is a total wreck again, but when I wake up to a messy house on a Monday, I am reminded that I have family and that we gather often. Always a good thing.

We received a website order last night so I spent the evening making some room sprays and packaging up orders. The basement smells of a cacophony of wonderful smells. I also made a batch of vanilla candles to fill another order. We are blessed to be doing well in this scary economy. Every time I see that we need a supply and the coffers are empty, someone places an order and the cost is covered. It reminds me of the story in Kings of Elijah and the widow of Zarapeth. I absolutely refuse to be depressed by the constant flow of bad news coming from the newscasters.

Ooh! Ooh! Ooh! The UPS man just dropped off the two new fragrance oils I ordered. They are Maple scents. I've been trying to find a good maple scent. The kind that used to have my boss asking "who's making pancakes?" I don't know if these are it, but I can't wait to try them out.

Word of the day:
Monday of the Fifth Week of Lent
Jn 8:1-11

Jesus went to the Mount of Olives.
But early in the morning he arrived again in the temple area,
and all the people started coming to him,
and he sat down and taught them.
Then the scribes and the Pharisees brought a woman
who had been caught in adultery
and made her stand in the middle.
They said to him,
"Teacher, this woman was caught
in the very act of committing adultery.
Now in the law, Moses commanded us to stone such women.
So what do you say?"
They said this to test him,
so that they could have some charge to bring against him.
Jesus bent down and began to write on the ground with his finger.
But when they continued asking him,
he straightened up and said to them,
"Let the one among you who is without sin
be the first to throw a stone at her."
Again he bent down and wrote on the ground.
And in response, they went away one by one,
beginning with the elders.
So he was left alone with the woman before him.
Then Jesus straightened up and said to her,
"Woman, where are they?
Has no one condemned you?"
She replied, "No one, sir."
Then Jesus said, "Neither do I condemn you.
Go, and from now on do not sin any more."

God bless our troops!
