It will officially be autumn in a few days. Time to haul out my fall decor and have Harold cut my corn shocks. Clayton and Claire are already talking about what they are going to be for Halloween. Clay seems so much more grown up lately. He's getting tall and he's quieter.

I didn't get much zone work done this week. Actually, I got NO zone work done this week. I did get the area underneath the kitchen sink cleaned thanks to the leaky faucet which Harold fixed with one twist.

I have shipped out almost all of our orders with the exception of 2 stockings that I still have to make and an order awaiting payment.

I have a wedding today, but this morning is fling boogie time so I'd better get to it.

Saturday of the Twenty-fourth week in Ordinary Time
Today the Church celebrates : St. Januarius, Bishop and Martyr (+305)
Saint John Chrysostom : "Whoever has ears to hear ought to hear."
Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Luke 8:4-15.


When a large crowd gathered, with people from one town after another journeying to him, he spoke in a parable. A sower went out to sow his seed. And as he sowed, some seed fell on the path and was trampled, and the birds of the sky ate it up. Some seed fell on rocky ground, and when it grew, it withered for lack of moisture. Some seed fell among thorns, and the thorns grew with it and choked it. And some seed fell on good soil, and when it grew, it produced fruit a hundredfold." After saying this, he called out, "Whoever has ears to hear ought to hear." Then his disciples asked him what the meaning of this parable might be. He answered, "Knowledge of the mysteries of the kingdom of God has been granted to you; but to the rest, they are made known through parables so that 'they may look but not see, and hear but not understand.' This is the meaning of the parable. The seed is the word of God. Those on the path are the ones who have heard, but the devil comes and takes away the word from their hearts that they may not believe and be saved. Those on rocky ground are the ones who, when they hear, receive the word with joy, but they have no root; they believe only for a time and fall away in time of trial. As for the seed that fell among thorns, they are the ones who have heard, but as they go along, they are choked by the anxieties and riches and pleasures of life, and they fail to produce mature fruit. But as for the seed that fell on rich soil, they are the ones who, when they have heard the word, embrace it with a generous and good heart, and bear fruit through perseverance.
