Mary Mathews writing is certainly getting better and better. She is talented to give a vivid color to the small things in our everyday life and narrate it beautifully. Emalayalee should consider her for the next emalayalee writers award.
Wine and Cana and weddings and relationships ..another topic of our searching for the perfection in relationships in holiness that we are destined for and ever yearning for ..in the trusting hope of being in the never ending Eteranl Banquet meant to transforme us from glory to glory ..wine can cause allergic reactions and in our times when many , esp. children too suffer from various allergies , giving up wine and alcoholic drinks with the intent to help bring protection and healing can be an act in charity in sweetness . The water that was meant for purification becoming transformed into the best wine when our Lord intervenes - keeping that hope and trust in families, asking for The Mother to intervene when faced with situations or even persons that seem are meant to be washed off , as hopeless - grateful for just such an occasion in which the Holy Father came through to deal with what could have been a messy situation in our SMCC Church too recently and God bless all who prayed and acted in wisdom and prudence .
Came across a whole cellar of good wine just today , in having found that the very good bible courses by an excellent teacher on same - Frances Hogan from Ireland are at the Shalom World site - to satisfy the deep thirst in souls that would help to put out all unhealthy appetites and desires - looking forward to hearing on the wedding at Cana narrative too . Blessings !
