John & Gene

That Eugene Peterson!  Remember the story in John where Jesus talks about how we’re supposed to eat His body and drink His blood, and how the disciples find that very difficult, “hard to understand”?  In the Message translation, Eugene Peterson says they found it “too tough to swallow”! :D  (John 6:60)

But, another great verse about nourishment from God’s Word (there are so many such verses!):
“The Spirit can make life. Sheer muscle and willpower don’t make anything happen. Every word I’ve spoken to you is a Spirit-word, and so it is life-making.” (John 6:63)  This is how The Mom gets her energy for the day!  As well as the wisdom to… pause… and notice things like this:

“You made me smile today, When I looked your way…
Little twinkle-dot Of Forget-me-not!”
