It's 6:30 and the sun is up. The corn is high and it looks like it's going to be a beautiful day. We promised Clairy-bear and Clayton that we would take them to see "Snow White." This was actually supposed to be Claire's day, but she wanted Clay to come too.

I made a batch of vanilla soap yesterday and this morning it is a beautiful chocolate brown, as is the nature of vanilla. I also spent a lot of time working on a quilt that I'm making for Anna for Christmas. It's going to be really cute! When we were in Alaska I picked up some wildlife fabric for when I start Justin's quilt.

It felt weird to be back at church last night - unsettling. I've never been gone that long.

Glen's had ice cream on sale last week. Since there will be no family dinner due to this afernoon's plans, we will have an ice cream social tonight.

Word of the day:
Eighteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time
Today the Church celebrates : St. Eusebius of Vercelli, Bishop (c.300-371)

Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint John 6:24-35.


When the crowd saw that neither Jesus nor his disciples were there, they themselves got into boats and came to Capernaum looking for Jesus. And when they found him across the sea they said to him, "Rabbi, when did you get here?" Jesus answered them and said, "Amen, amen, I say to you, you are looking for me not because you saw signs but because you ate the loaves and were filled. Do not work for food that perishes but for the food that endures for eternal life, which the Son of Man will give you. For on him the Father, God, has set his seal." So they said to him, "What can we do to accomplish the works of God?" Jesus answered and said to them, "This is the work of God, that you believe in the one he sent." So they said to him, "What sign can you do, that we may see and believe in you? What can you do? Our ancestors ate manna in the desert, as it is written: 'He gave them bread from heaven to eat.'" So Jesus said to them, "Amen, amen, I say to you, it was not Moses who gave the bread from heaven; my Father gives you the true bread from heaven. For the bread of God is that which comes down from heaven and gives life to the world." So they said to him, "Sir, give us this bread always." Jesus said to them, "I am the bread of life; whoever comes to me will never hunger, and whoever believes in me will never thirst.

I know what you mean, it always seems a little 'off' after I've been gone from church for a while. I know everyone was glad to have you back , though.
