Ever have those days where you wake up feeling lower than the earth, like no one cares, like nothing you do matters? I woke up that way this morning. I felt like "why bother even getting up? No one cares anyway." When I get like that, I set the timer for 15 minutes, have a pity party, and then get on with the day. Sometimes it helps, sometimes it doesn't. After the 15 minutes are up, I do something that makes me feel good - like quilting or making candles or whatever. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. When the timer rang this morning I went to my craft room and looked at some of the blocks I've been working on. I began to get some ideas on how we can revive our faltering Prayer Quilt group. Then I felt better.
Today is grocery day, GoodWill day, I have some orders to fill, and a stocking order to make.
Word of the day:
Today the Church celebrates : The Nativity of St. John the Baptist - Solemnity
Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Luke 1:57-66.80.
When the time arrived for Elizabeth to have her child she gave birth to a son. Her neighbors and relatives heard that the Lord had shown his great mercy toward her, and they rejoiced with her. When they came on the eighth day to circumcise the child, they were going to call him Zechariah after his father, but his mother said in reply, "No. He will be called John." But they answered her, "There is no one among your relatives who has this name." So they made signs, asking his father what he wished him to be called. He asked for a tablet and wrote, "John is his name," and all were amazed. Immediately his mouth was opened, his tongue freed, and he spoke blessing God. Then fear came upon all their neighbors, and all these matters were discussed throughout the hill country of Judea. All who heard these things took them to heart, saying, "What, then, will this child be?" For surely the hand of the Lord was with him. The child grew and became strong in spirit, and he was in the desert until the day of his manifestation to Israel.
