Happy Mother's Day!

We won't be doing anything until this evening when the kids come and then we will fire up the pizza oven.  Yummmmm!!!  So I am using this afternoon to get caught up on some housecleaning.  This week I have to do 150 more little soaps for the GOTR gift bags.  Tomorrow I have to do 2 batches of soap for a lady who is getting married in June.  She wants them for favors for the wedding party.  Those are going to be fun, but I want to make sure that I have stuff picked up around here so I can enjoy the process.  I will be making 10 cupcakes for the ladies, and 10 slices of soap for the men.  Anna is making special labels and I am really excited about doing them.  They have to be done tomorrow so they have time to cure before the wedding

Word of the day:
Third Sunday of Easter
Saint(s) of the day : St Victor
Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Luke 24:13-35.

That very day, the first day of the week, two of Jesus' disciples were going to a village seven miles from Jerusalem called Emmaus,
and they were conversing about all the things that had occurred.
And it happened that while they were conversing and debating, Jesus himself drew near and walked with them,
but their eyes were prevented from recognizing him.
He asked them, "What are you discussing as you walk along?" They stopped, looking downcast.
One of them, named Cleopas, said to him in reply, "Are you the only visitor to Jerusalem who does not know of the things that have taken place there in these days?"
And he replied to them, "What sort of things?" They said to him, "The things that happened to Jesus the Nazarene, who was a prophet mighty in deed and word before God and all the people,
how our chief priests and rulers both handed him over to a sentence of death and crucified him.
But we were hoping that he would be the one to redeem Israel; and besides all this, it is now the third day since this took place.
Some women from our group, however, have astounded us: they were at the tomb early in the morning
and did not find his body; they came back and reported that they had indeed seen a vision of angels who announced that he was alive.
Then some of those with us went to the tomb and found things just as the women had described, but him they did not see."
And he said to them, "Oh, how foolish you are! How slow of heart to believe all that the prophets spoke!
Was it not necessary that the Messiah should suffer these things and enter into his glory?"
Then beginning with Moses and all the prophets, he interpreted to them what referred to him in all the scriptures.
As they approached the village to which they were going, he gave the impression that he was going on farther.
But they urged him, "Stay with us, for it is nearly evening and the day is almost over." So he went in to stay with them.
And it happened that, while he was with them at table, he took bread, said the blessing, broke it, and gave it to them.
With that their eyes were opened and they recognized him, but he vanished from their sight.
Then they said to each other, "Were not our hearts burning (within us) while he spoke to us on the way and opened the scriptures to us?"
So they set out at once and returned to Jerusalem where they found gathered together the eleven and those with them
who were saying, "The Lord has truly been raised and has appeared to Simon!"
Then the two recounted what had taken place on the way and how he was made known to them in the breaking of the bread.

You are so creative! I don't remember ever seeing little soaps before shaped like cupcakes... adorable.

Also, I just have to say, I enjoyed your instrumental background music. One of my pet peeves are blogs that blast you with music while trying to read. Then I have to go find the player and turn it off before I can concentrate on the words. But yours is beautiful instrumental, and made me smile!
