filled to the brim

On the third day there was a marriage at Cana in Galilee, and the mother of Jesus was there; Jesus also was invited to the marriage, with his disciples. When the wine failed, the mother of Jesus said to him, “They have no wine.” And Jesus said to her, “O woman, what have you to do with me? My hour has not yet come.” His mother said to the servants, “Do whatever he tells you.”

Now six stone jars were standing there, for the Jewish rites of purification, each holding twenty or thirty gallons. Jesus said to them, “Fill the jars with water.” And they filled them up to the brim.

Trust Me

Do you believe I am the Son of God?

And do you believe that I died for all men and women and that I rose from the dead?

Then why do you continue to be distracted and anxious about your loved ones?

Do they not belong to Me?

Would I refuse to work in their lives just as I work in yours?

I have not put you in charge of redeeming them.

I have already done that.

Nor do you have the power to change their hearts;

only my Holy Spirit searches and knows the deepest hearts of men and women, and only He can heal their deepest wounds.

Your task is to love, to forgive, to pray for them and to turn them over to Me. 

Come closer to me yourself, and I will do the rest.

TRUST ME!

Save the Internet -vs- Save the Children

March 2019 – Washington, DC – U.S. Senator Bob Casey (D-PA) released a statement following the introduction of the Save the Internet Act of 2019:

“Today Congressional Democrats joined to demonstrate our united support for a free, open internet and the restoration of strong net neutrality principles, which were rolled back by President Trump’s FCC in 2017. Last year’s effort to restore net neutrality had bipartisan support in the Senate, and I hope my colleagues will continue working to pass legislation permanently enshrining strong net neutrality protections in our code of law. With more of our lives happening online—from education to entertainment, commerce to health services—we need to make sure that all Americans have access to a free and open internet.”
