Admired a cornucopia on my table. It was a gift. It makes me feel thankful.

“Mommy, can I help you?!”

“Absolutely, my dear. Thank you!”

Reward for his labor – Today at Liturgy the priest spoke how with God there is great reward for small effort with love.
Alex has been asking for the last week to make cookies. He wanted to make the kids.

Psalm 95

1 Come, let us sing for joy to the LORD;
   let us shout aloud to the Rock of our salvation.
2 Let us come before him with thanksgiving
   and extol him with music and song.

3 For the LORD is the great God,
   the great King above all gods.
4 In his hand are the depths of the earth,
   and the mountain peaks belong to him.
5 The sea is his, for he made it,
   and his hands formed the dry land.

6 Come, let us bow down in worship,
   let us kneel before the LORD our Maker;
7 for he is our God
   and we are the people of his pasture,
   the flock under his care.

   Today, if only you would hear his voice,
8 “Do not harden your hearts as you did at Meribah,
   as you did that day at Massah in the wilderness,
9 where your ancestors tested me;
   they tried me, though they had seen what I did.
10 For forty years I was angry with that generation;
   I said, ‘They are a people whose hearts go astray,
   and they have not known my ways.’
11 So I declared on oath in my anger,
   ‘They shall never enter my rest.’”
