Last week I got my very first order of soap from my Etsy shop. Yesterday, Deb from Springvale Soap wrote about us in her blog. She is such a sweetheart!!
I received notice today that my loaf cutter for my soap is shipping today. I cancelled the mold that I had ordered with it because I ended up buying some other molds because I couldn't wait. From what I have heard, the workmanship is awesome. I just wish he was more truthful about arrival times on his products. His communication is much better than it was, so that is a good thing. I can't wait for it to get here because I have an order for soap for wedding attendants and I want all of the slices to be the same size.
I spent the day working on music for Holy Week and for tomorrow's funeral. People have no idea what goes on behind the scenes of the Mass to make sure that the liturgy runs smoothly. The actual playing at Mass actually takes up the least of my time. It is the preparation that bumps up the hours I spend working. But I love it. Just wish I was more organized - I try, but I am not gifted in that department. :)
I got some new fragrance oils in yesterday and I am itching to try them out, but not until I have time to do it without rushing.
Word of the day:
Wednesday of the Fifth week of Lent
Saint(s) of the day : St Hermenegild, Martyr († 586)
Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint John 8:31-42.
Jesus said to those Jews who believed in him, "If you remain in my word, you will truly be my disciples,
and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free."
They answered him, "We are descendants of Abraham and have never been enslaved to anyone. How can you say, 'You will become free'?"
Jesus answered them, "Amen, amen, I say to you, everyone who commits sin is a slave of sin.
A slave does not remain in a household forever, but a son always remains.
So if a son frees you, then you will truly be free.
I know that you are descendants of Abraham. But you are trying to kill me, because my word has no room among you.
I tell you what I have seen in the Father's presence; then do what you have heard from the Father."
They answered and said to him, "Our father is Abraham." Jesus said to them, "If you were Abraham's children, you would be doing the works of Abraham.
But now you are trying to kill me, a man who has told you the truth that I heard from God; Abraham did not do this.
You are doing the works of your father!" (So) they said to him, "We are not illegitimate. We have one Father, God."
Jesus said to them, "If God were your Father, you would love me, for I came from God and am here; I did not come on my own, but he sent me.
