His mother said to the servers, "Do whatever he tells you." - John 2:5
These are the last words of Mary recorded in the Bible. What powerful words they are. Sometimes I feel as if she is speaking to me. Do whatever he tells you.
The picture here is a picture I took when we visited the Holy Land several years ago. It is the church at Cana. We renewed our vows outside of the church because it was so crowded inside. We bought a bottle of wine at the gift shop there and gave it to our son when he and his girlfriend got engaged.
And I sometimes wonder, did Jesus dance at our wedding?
Of course he did.
Jesus, thank you for the miracle at Cana, and for your overflowing abundance of love. Love for your mother. Love for us. And thank you also for teaching us that there is a time for everything. A time for dance and a time for joy. A time for work and a time for play. Help me to live in the moment and enjoy each moment as they are all gifts from you. Amen.
