It has been so warm lately, and our internet connection has been a pain. I am trying to be patient, but it's been a couple months now and we should be able to have more stability here.
Spent some time down in the dungeon. I am making progress in very small increments, but it is still progress all the same. I made a batch of candles, packaged up some simmering potpourri, sorted my rusty candle pans, moved a few things around. The average person wouldn't notice any difference, but I do.
I am getting my music straightened around. We will be getting a new priest in a few weeks, and I'm a little nervous about the change. I guess I'll feel more secure after I get to know what he wants. With each pastoral change it's a challenge to stay grounded. It takes me a long time to adjust to changes - I'm talking years, not months. But it always works out. I just need to trust that.
This week's zone is the entry way. I have a front hall that needs decluttering in the worst way.

Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Mark 12:18-27.
Some Sadducees, who say there is no resurrection, came to him and put this question to him, saying, "Teacher, Moses wrote for us, 'If someone's brother dies, leaving a wife but no child, his brother must take the wife and raise up descendants for his brother.' Now there were seven brothers. The first married a woman and died, leaving no descendants. So the second married her and died, leaving no descendants, and the third likewise. And the seven left no descendants. Last of all the woman also died. At the resurrection (when they arise) whose wife will she be? For all seven had been married to her." Jesus said to them, "Are you not misled because you do not know the scriptures or the power of God? When they rise from the dead, they neither marry nor are given in marriage, but they are like the angels in heaven. As for the dead being raised, have you not read in the Book of Moses, in the passage about the bush, how God told him, 'I am the God of Abraham, (the) God of Isaac, and (the) God of Jacob'? He is not God of the dead but of the living. You are greatly misled."
