Okay, so I open my email today to find that Barack Obama has confirmed me as a relative on Facebook. Someone's having a little April Fool's day fun.

Yesterday I began work on a new prayer quilt. This one is really going to be cute. The lady who requested it supplied the fabric. I decided to simplify my patterns for prayer quilts in the interest of getting them done in a more timely manner. I decided to alternate the Kitten pattern blocks with 4 square blocks in coodinating colors. There were some scraps with it so I may do some appliques here and there.

Word of the day:
Wednesday of the Fifth Week of Lent
Gospel
Jn 8:31-42

Jesus said to those Jews who believed in him,
"If you remain in my word, you will truly be my disciples,
and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free."
They answered him, "We are descendants of Abraham
and have never been enslaved to anyone.
How can you say, 'You will become free'?"
Jesus answered them, "Amen, amen, I say to you,
everyone who commits sin is a slave of sin.
A slave does not remain in a household forever,
but a son always remains.
So if the Son frees you, then you will truly be free.
I know that you are descendants of Abraham.
But you are trying to kill me,
because my word has no room among you.
I tell you what I have seen in the Father's presence;
then do what you have heard from the Father."

They answered and said to him, "Our father is Abraham."
Jesus said to them, "If you were Abraham's children,
you would be doing the works of Abraham.
But now you are trying to kill me,
a man who has told you the truth that I heard from God;
Abraham did not do this.
You are doing the works of your father!"
So they said to him, "We were not born of fornication.
We have one Father, God."
Jesus said to them, "If God were your Father, you would love me,
for I came from God and am here;
I did not come on my own, but he sent me."



God bless our troops!

Apparently everyone on Facebook is kin to Obama. LOL! Maybe I can opt out since he has so many other relatives.
