— 4 —   Spotlight On:  I have never used the site to promote anything but I have to tell you about SmartPress.com!!! Remember the book I have been working on for my Mom?  Well, it is finished and they arrived on Monday.  This printing company is amazing! Their customer service is wonderful and they once they realized that I paid too much, they informed me and refunded me immediately.  I was expecting it to cost $600 and they refunded half plus the reduced shipping.  I placed my order on Saturday, they sent me the soft copy on Sunday and they arrived one week later.  If you have any printing needs, I highly recommend this company!

— 6 —  The Catholic Company:  You girls like jewelry, right?  Check out The Catholic Company!  I have my eye on this:

— 7 —    God Never Rests:  I never thought about this until I saw the words of  Origen.  No, I did not spell it incorrectly.  Origen was a Catholic priest and theologian who lived in the 3rd century (185-253).  Here is what he had to say:
We don’t see that the words of Genesis: “God rested on the Sabbath day from all his works” came to pass on this seventh day of creation nor, indeed, that they have come to pass today. We always see God at work. There is no Sabbath when God stops working, no day when he does not “make his sun rise on the bad and the good and cause rain to fall on the just and the unjust”, when he does not make “grass to sprout on the mountains and herbs for the service of men”…, or when he does not “put to death and give life”.This is how our Lord answers those who accused him of working and healing on the Sabbath: “My Father is at work until now and I am at work.” By this he showed that, during the time of this world, there is no Sabbath when God rests from watching over the progress of the world and destiny of humankind… In his wisdom as Creator he never ceases to exercise his providence and watchful care over his creatures “until the end of the world”. Therefore the real Sabbath when God will rest from all his works will be the world to come when “sorrow and mourning will flee” and God will be “all in all”.

God love and bless you!
