It's been 45 years, but sometimes it seems like yesterday. On this day in 1964 I came home from school to find out that my mother had died. It's funny how some details can be so clearly etched in your mind. Mama was 32 years old. That seemed old to me from my 12-year-old perspective. Now it seems so very young. I still miss her.
I made soap yesterday. It's been a while. I also did some room sprays. I'm looking out the windwo right now and there are flurries. The guys are out in the sap house boiling sap. They boiled from 3-11 last night. Taxes are still not finished. Today I will work on those.
Word of the day:
Wednesday of the Second Week in Lent
Mt 20:17-28

As Jesus was going up to Jerusalem,
he took the Twelve disciples aside by themselves,
and said to them on the way,
"Behold, we are going up to Jerusalem,
and the Son of Man will be handed over to the chief priests
and the scribes,
and they will condemn him to death,
and hand him over to the Gentiles
to be mocked and scourged and crucified,
and he will be raised on the third day."

Then the mother of the sons of Zebedee approached Jesus with her sons
and did him homage, wishing to ask him for something.
He said to her, "What do you wish?"
She answered him,
"Command that these two sons of mine sit,
one at your right and the other at your left, in your kingdom."
Jesus said in reply,
"You do not know what you are asking.
Can you drink the chalice that I am going to drink?"
They said to him, "We can."
He replied,
"My chalice you will indeed drink,
but to sit at my right and at my left,
this is not mine to give
but is for those for whom it has been prepared by my Father."
When the ten heard this,
they became indignant at the two brothers.
But Jesus summoned them and said,
"You know that the rulers of the Gentiles lord it over them,
and the great ones make their authority over them felt.
But it shall not be so among you.
Rather, whoever wishes to be great among you shall be your servant;
whoever wishes to be first among you shall be your slave.
Just so, the Son of Man did not come to be served but to serve
and to give his life as a ransom for many."

God Bless Our Troops!
