See how the farmer waits for the precious fruit of the earth, being patient with it until it receives the early and the late rains. - James 5:7

With all that is going on these days...



These days there's so much going on
No one seems to want to know... - Talking Old Soldiers
.
"Odious to the Lord and to men is arrogance..." - Sirach 10:7
.
"For they preach but do not practice... they widen their phylacteries and lengthen their tassels.  They love places of honor at banquets, seats of honor in synagogues, greetings in marketplaces... Whoever exalts himself will be humbled, but whoever humbles himself will be exalted." - Matt. 23: 1-12
.
"I will correct you by drawing your sins up before your eyes." - Ps. 50
.
God loves humility so much...

  2. Maria - I wish it was - it's by a Pre-Rapaelite painter whose name I don't recall. A woman painted it. I think it images fatherhood very well.
