Happy St. John Vianney day to all of our priests:

I need to get motivated to get organized. I am getting things done, but not in an orderly way. Today, on a whim, I made seven grungy lamps.  I managed to burn my finger on the hot glue gun.  I love these lamps and I love making them - well, except when I burn my finger.

I also made a batch of Cinnamon Stick candles.  Our money resources are always low at this time of year and it's always a struggle to get the supplies we need for the fall shows.  We often have to wait until after the first show to pay ourselves back for ingredients and supplies.

I am continuing to try and get our supply of Christmas stocking bottoms ready for the orders for this fall.  When it's hot and humid like this, it is really hard to make myself go into my craft room to get them done.  So far we have 75 made.  That's about half of what we need.  I am now headed for the craft room.

Word of the day:
Wednesday of the Eighteenth week in Ordinary Time
Today the Church celebrates : St. John Mary Vianney, Priest (1786-1859) - Memorial
Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Matthew 15:21-28.

Then Jesus went from that place and withdrew to the region of Tyre and Sidon. And behold, a Canaanite woman of that district came and called out, "Have pity on me, Lord, Son of David! My daughter is tormented by a demon." But he did not say a word in answer to her. His disciples came and asked him, "Send her away, for she keeps calling out after us." He said in reply, "I was sent only to the lost sheep of the house of Israel." But the woman came and did him homage, saying, "Lord, help me." He said in reply, "It is not right to take the food of the children and throw it to the dogs." She said, "Please, Lord, for even the dogs eat the scraps that fall from the table of their masters." Then Jesus said to her in reply, "O woman, great is your faith! Let it be done for you as you wish." And her daughter was healed from that hour.
