Remember the failed batch of Peppermint Patty soap that I made a few months ago? Today it is being shredded up with some other soap ends and the girls are helping me make soap balls. Madison says they look like donuts so she calls them soapy donuts. We are generally able to find uses for all of our scraps both with soap and candle wax. The materials are just too expensive to throw away. I imagine our grandmothers made these out of their dibs and dabs of soaps. I mean if these ladies saved their own hair, soap would be a no brainer. LOL!
Word of the day:
Fifth Sunday in Ordinary Time
Saint(s) of the day : St. Agatha, Virgin & Martyr (+ 251) - Memorial
Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Mark 1:29-39.
On leaving the synagogue Jesus entered the house of Simon and Andrew with James and John.
Simon's mother-in-law lay sick with a fever. They immediately told him about her.
He approached, grasped her hand, and helped her up. Then the fever left her and she waited on them.
When it was evening, after sunset, they brought to him all who were ill or possessed by demons.
The whole town was gathered at the door.
He cured many who were sick with various diseases, and he drove out many demons, not permitting them to speak because they knew him.
Rising very early before dawn, he left and went off to a deserted place, where he prayed.
Simon and those who were with him pursued him
and on finding him said, "Everyone is looking for you."
He told them, "Let us go on to the nearby villages that I may preach there also. For this purpose have I come."
So he went into their synagogues, preaching and driving out demons throughout the whole of Galilee.
