Very late getting on today. The day started early and kind of got away from me. Tomorrow I hope to get something done. It is amazing how a bathroom remodel affects every area of the house. Two rooms are taken up with stuff from the bathroom. The kitchen is pushed about so the guys can get through. All of my stuff is in the back bathroom. So far Harold and I have managed to share the one small bathroom in the back of the house.
I poured the other flameless tealight and will hopefully get that order mailed out on Thursday. Tomorrow I have a reconcillation service for the St. Mary's school kids.
The guys are boiling the last of the sap. This syrup season is the worst we can remember. Three boilings and we were done because it looks like the trees are about to bud out. The kids actually played outside without their coats and hats.
Word of the day:
Tuesday of the Fourth week of Lent
Today the Church celebrates : St Heribert, Archbishop (c. 970-1021), St Abraham, Hermit & St Mary (4th century)
Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint John 5:1-16.
After this, there was a feast of the Jews, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem. Now there is in Jerusalem at the Sheep (Gate) a pool called in Hebrew Bethesda, with five porticoes. In these lay a large number of ill, blind, lame, and crippled. One man was there who had been ill for thirty-eight years. When Jesus saw him lying there and knew that he had been ill for a long time, he said to him, "Do you want to be well?" The sick man answered him, "Sir, I have no one to put me into the pool when the water is stirred up; while I am on my way, someone else gets down there before me." Jesus said to him, "Rise, take up your mat, and walk." Immediately the man became well, took up his mat, and walked. Now that day was a sabbath. So the Jews said to the man who was cured, "It is the sabbath, and it is not lawful for you to carry your mat." He answered them, "The man who made me well told me, 'Take up your mat and walk.'" They asked him, "Who is the man who told you, 'Take it up and walk'?" The man who was healed did not know who it was, for Jesus had slipped away, since there was a crowd there. After this Jesus found him in the temple area and said to him, "Look, you are well; do not sin any more, so that nothing worse may happen to you." The man went and told the Jews that Jesus was the one who had made him well. Therefore, the Jews began to persecute Jesus because he did this on a sabbath.
