What Do You Listen To When You Write?

Monday, April 23, 2007

Sunday Crusin. .

Sunday, I took the time to rest that I needed to take. Service was short, but rather profound and we were looking at and pondering the Wedding in Cana, and the water-into-wine miracle that Jesus preformed. Lots of interesting things there, including the fact that Mary most likely didn't expect Jesus to preform a miracle at that time. At least not according to the Pastor she didn't, and for the first time, it made sense what she said to the servants. He was the oldest male relative at the time at the wedding that was related to Mary and her relaying to him the serious problem that was unfolding was not to push Him to act supernaturally but to have Him act in some way to avoid having the shame come crashing down on her (she was most likely an aunt to either the bride or the groom according to early church documents) and the rest of the extended family. So Mary expected Him to go and get wine, or to act in some way to prevent the shame but she wasn't pressing him to do a miracle like some people teach.

I knew I liked Mary!

After service I cleaned up, and then Artchick and I went to Record and Tape Traders so she could exchange some CD's and DVD's, I found Fleetwood Mac's "Say You Will" for $6.99 and "Hewy Lewis & The News Greatest Hits" for $11.99 so I was happy, but there were an awful lot of items in that particular store I wish I hadn't seen. I mean I know stuff's out there, and I know that people buy it and all, but it made my stomach tighten walking down the isles and seeing it sitting out there. Anyway, after purchasing the CD's and getting a large ice tea from their cooler, Artchick and I headed over to Barnes & Noble. I didn't find anything there :( but she found several books, and then we headed to Safeway to get something for dinner. Not a bad day really, and I came home and watched several Remmington Steele episodes and did laundry.
