Lots to do today. I volunteered to take over the music for Vacation Bible School this summer. I really didn't want to because we are going to be in Alaska the entire month before. But if I didn't do it there would be no music. And as they said, "you'll be better than what we have." Not a ringing endorsement of my skills, but true none-the-less. So today I meet with one of the co-ordinators. This is just too big an endeavor to not help where I can.

While I'm uptown I'll pick up one of the hard oils I need for soaping. I plan to get at least the hard oils measured today. It's getting dry enough that I can go down and mop the floor and get that place back into some semblance of order.

Clay and Claire came over yesterday and we picked lilacs from across the road. We made a bouquet for Mommy and put it in a glass canning jar. She was pleased.


Word of the day:
Wednesday of the Fifth week of Easter
Today the Church celebrates : Our Lady of Fatima
Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint John 15:1-8.

I am the true vine, and my Father is the vine grower. He takes away every branch in me that does not bear fruit, and everyone that does he prunes so that it bears more fruit. You are already pruned because of the word that I spoke to you. Remain in me, as I remain in you. Just as a branch cannot bear fruit on its own unless it remains on the vine, so neither can you unless you remain in me. I am the vine, you are the branches. Whoever remains in me and I in him will bear much fruit, because without me you can do nothing. Anyone who does not remain in me will be thrown out like a branch and wither; people will gather them and throw them into a fire and they will be burned. If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask for whatever you want and it will be done for you. By this is my Father glorified, that you bear much fruit and become my disciples.
