VBS went well yesterday. I like the format of having the music with all the kids at the beginning rather than in separate groups.

I forgot this yesterday, about when we took Claire to see Snow White. Clay had opted to go fishing with Justin. When we arrived to pick up Claire, she was dressed in a Snow White costume. She looked adorable. Melisa said, "she wanted to wear it." A pair of pink and white cowboy boots with Snow White decals on the front completed the outfit. There is never a camera around when you need it.

Tuesday of the Eighteenth week in Ordinary Time
Today the Church celebrates : St. John Mary Vianney, Priest (1786-1859)
Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Matthew 14:22-36.

Then he made the disciples get into the boat and precede him to the other side, while he dismissed the crowds. After doing so, he went up on the mountain by himself to pray. When it was evening he was there alone. Meanwhile the boat, already a few miles offshore, was being tossed about by the waves, for the wind was against it. During the fourth watch of the night, he came toward them, walking on the sea. When the disciples saw him walking on the sea they were terrified. "It is a ghost," they said, and they cried out in fear. At once (Jesus) spoke to them, "Take courage, it is I; do not be afraid." Peter said to him in reply, "Lord, if it is you, command me to come to you on the water." He said, "Come." Peter got out of the boat and began to walk on the water toward Jesus. But when he saw how (strong) the wind was he became frightened; and, beginning to sink, he cried out, "Lord, save me!" Immediately Jesus stretched out his hand and caught him, and said to him, "O you of little faith, why did you doubt?" After they got into the boat, the wind died down. Those who were in the boat did him homage, saying, "Truly, you are the Son of God." After making the crossing, they came to land at Gennesaret. When the men of that place recognized him, they sent word to all the surrounding country. People brought to him all those who were sick and begged him that they might touch only the tassel on his cloak, and as many as touched it were healed.

Thoughts from the cornfield:

See what happens when you take your eyes off Jesus?

LOL. I remembered to take my camera today. VBS is going very well. The kids seem to be loving the music. I went simple because I didn't have a lot of prep time. Turns out that simple is what the kids like!
