Last week was the annual Maple Syrup Festival in Shepherd. We had our best year and are really grateful for all the people who support us.
Following the Syrup Festival we finished up our donation for the Girls on the Run Race bags. This is a cause we are privileged and honored to support. This year Clayton helped me package them up while his mom, sister, and brother were at the Syrup Princess pageant. I already have some cool ideas for next year's soaps.
Now I am concentrating on getting the house ready for a celebration of the arrival of Ben
And we are also celebrating Jamie getting his GED. He worked long and hard for it and we are very proud of him. So far I have the laundry room done. I have quite a way to go.
Tuesday of the Fifth week of Easter Saint(s) of the day : St Victor
Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint John 14:27-31a.
Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give it to you. Do not let your hearts be troubled or afraid. You heard me tell you, 'I am going away and I will come back to you.' If you loved me, you would rejoice that I am going to the Father; for the Father is greater than I. And now I have told you this before it happens, so that when it happens you may believe. I will no longer speak much with you, for the ruler of the world is coming. He has no power over me, but the world must know that I love the Father and that I do just as the Father has commanded me. Get up, let us go.
